Using Experiential Learning to Discover Gender and Diversity Bias in HR practices
This experiential learning session will help participants teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in human resource management or related courses to incorporate a relevant experiential learning exercise in the classroom. The session includes an exercise with multiple rounds of candidate selection that have been used successfully by a management educator teaching Human Resource Management and related subjects. The exercise addresses selection process challenges, gender bias, diversity, and stereotypes. Based on a one hour workshop, session attendees will be able to participate in each round of the exercise and participate in a final large group debrief session.
