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’.
