Diversity, yes, but... | #HRTea
A new episode of #HRTea is now available on iTunes and Google Play! This episode kicks off a three part mini-series on diversity and inclusion with three different Villanova professors all doing research in different aspects of D&I. In this episode, Bethany sits down with Quinetta Roberson, a Villanova Professor of Management and the Fred J. Springer Endowed Chair. She has been doing research on diversity and inclusion initiatives in organizations for 15+ years and as you will hear in the episode, in her diversity work, she's "willing to tell the dark side. It's not all puppies and rainbows."
After you listen, be sure to connect with Quinetta and check out some of her research:
Check out the Villanova School of Business podcast, Inspiring Minds, for the interview with Quinetta that we mention in the episode.
Read Quinetta's research that was mentioned in the podcast: "The Evolution and Future of Diversity at Work," (Roberson, Ryan, & Ragins, 2017) and"Examining the Link Between Diversity and Firm Performance: The Effects of Diversity Reputation and Leader Racial Diversity," (Roberson & Park, 2007).
