Blacks in I/O Psychology | #VillanovaHRTea
Join the co-founders of Blacks in I/O, Shavonne Holman and Macy Cheeks, for a conversation about the importance of bringing diversity into industrial and organizational psychology research. Shavonne and Macy are challenging organizations, institutions, and academia to diversify their research to be more representative of the workforce of the future. Check out this new episode of #VillanovaHRtea available now on iTunes and Google Podcasts!
“As black women, historically, we've seen that the odds have been against us in the workforce. We're going against that, we're going against the current status of the workplace. Macy and I are really committed to seeing a change in the workforce and in the field not only for ourselves, but for future generations in the I/O space and the workforce in general. So a lot of our work is really geared around challenging organizations and challenging institutions to diversify the field of I/O Psychology, bring[ing] exposure to the field, mak[ing] sure that there's representation in the field. We have curated events and facilitated a lot of discussions really geared around just that: diversifying the field [and] bringing exposure to the field."
