Researching diversity: CARMA live webcast this Friday

Published November 2, 2016 by Mark Bodnar

Another CARMA live webcast is coming up this Friday.  This one looks to be most relevant to our Organizational Behaviour/HRM researchers, but it's possible that some of the international business people may also find it useful. (All are welcome, of course!)

When: Friday, Nov. 4th, 9am (PST)

Where: Burnaby, Bennett Library, Research Commons, Seminar Rm 7010
* Note: CARMA allows each subscribing institution a very limited number of logins for viewing the live webcasts, so we've arranged to host them in our Research Commons.  If you have a group of people who can't make it up to Burnaby, contact us and we can look into alternatives, or wait a week and watch the archived version of the webcast when it's available online via CARMA.

Who: Dr. Dave Harrison (UTexas (Austin)) will be delivering...

What: "Variation into Elevation: Diversity Paradigms for Understanding Team and Organizational Outcomes"

"Scholarship on diversity holds a relatively unique position in organizational research, as its main tenets propose that the variance of an antecedent, X (beyond the mean of X), will effect a subsequent mean on an outcome, Y.  I will discuss this paradigm in depth, highlighting the forms of diversity on X that are studied most often -- with a particular emphasis on different conceptual mechanisms through which team composition can have an impact on team effectiveness.  In addition, I will note the forms of measurement that are proper operationalizations of these paradigms, and the analytic procedures for using them appropriately."

More details and registration: via our Research Commons Workshops page.

Presentation slides are already available for this talk, and the archived webcast should be available via our CARMA Video Library within a week or so.
