CSWEP-SSRC Women in Economics and Mathematics Research Consortium


This project draws upon principles from behavioral economics to raise awareness about individuals’ and organizations’ biases and preferences. The project involves a comprehensive self-assessment of decision-making within academia, including by department chairs and deans. The overarching objective is to increase awareness of bias in departments and among individual faculty themselves, potentially leading to adjustments in choices and eventually changing job market outcomes for women and other underrepresented minorities.
