Date: 29th April 2020

Location: Centre for Mathematical Sciences, University of Cambridge

Time: 5.30 pm


CamAWiSE and the Centre for Mathematical Sciences, University of Cambridge are  pleased to present Prof Dr Naomi Ellemers on the 29th April 2020.

Social psychologist Naomi Ellemers examines the behavior of people in organizations. Her main topics of expertise are Diversity and Inclusion, and Integrity and Ethics at work.

To investigate the behavior of people in organizations, Naomi combines experimental methodologies examining brain activity and stress with observations of people in the workplace. Her aim is to understand how group affiliations impact on individual behaviors in organizations. In her diversity lab, she identifies the work experiences of women, ethnic minorities, and members of the LGBT community. In her integrity lab, she also examines how individuals are guided by the ethical climate at work, for instance in the financial sector.

ALL WELCOME (all genders and non-STEMM).
