Workplaces across a variety of industries are reckoning with sexual harassment, sexual assault, and racial bullying. Some social scientists say this type of behavior stems from inequalities in the workplace, where too few women and people of color holding senior positions. Professor Iris Bohnet is a behavioral economist at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government. Her research shows that addressing inequalities in institutions is more effective than trying to end bias between individuals. "Sadly enough there is a ton of evidence suggesting that it is very hard to de-bias mindsets," Bohnet told WNYC's Jami Floyd. Bohnet said diversity training has minimal success in making workplaces more equitable. Instead, Bohnet said industries will become more diverse if they make hiring and promotion practices to be based more on merit. Her research includes the example of putting a screen in front of auditioning musicians, or taking demographic identifiers off of resumes. Her most recent book is called What Works: Gender Equality by Design.
