International Women’s Day marked by Richmond Professor

Professor Carola Hieker, who teaches on the MBA Programme at Richmond Business School, will be raising the profile of International Women’s Day on Tuesday 8 March.

Professor Hieker will be speaking to employees within Accenture, a multinational professional services company, about social diversity, stereotypes, favouritism, and preferences.

As a trained banker and business psychologist, Professor Hieker possesses more than 25 years of experience as a coach and change management consultant mainly in financial services and professional services organisations.

She said, “I’m delighted to be raising some very important issues within a highly influential organisation as part of International Women’s Day“.  The campaign theme for IWD 2022 this year is #BreakTheBias and it is important to understand how our social identities influence our thinking and how we see the world to ‘break the bias’.
