Mikki Hebl, Martha and Henry Malcolm Lovett Professor of Psychological Sciences and Management, Rice University, presents the Noon Talk “How Individuals and Organizations can Reduce Racism” at 12:00 p.m. via Zoom as part of the Rice Architecture Fall 2020 Lecture Series: Race, Social Justice, and Allyship.
In this talk, Hebl will provide some context for the magnitude of racism, discrimination, and social injustice that still exists in this country. Afterwards, she will share a video of her Juneteenth and America’s Racial Legacy talk. She will then take Q & A from the audience.
Hebl graduated with her B.A. from Smith College and Ph.D. from Dartmouth College. She joined the faculty at Rice University in 1998, and is currently the Martha and Henry Malcolm Lovett Professor of Psychology with a joint appointment in the Jones School. Hebl’s research focuses on workplace discrimination and the ways both individuals and organizations can remediate such discrimination and successfully manage diversity. She has approximately 200 publications, 21 teaching awards (including the most prestigious national award called the Cherry Award), research grants from NSF and NIH, and several gender-related research awards. In 2014, she was honored with the Academy of Management’s Sage Award for lifetime achievement in research advancing knowledge of gender and diversity in organizations, and in 2018, she was selected as the Woman in Academia with Outstanding Career Award from the University of Lausanne Business School, Switzerland.
Rice Architecture Fall 2020 Lectures are part of an initiative to acknowledge, understand, and act on systemic racism in the built environment. Invited designers, scholars, and activists will speak on the relationship between race, architecture, and, by extension, related questions of social equity, environmental justice, and gender parity. The aim of the lecture series is to foreground these issues in the school’s curriculum while more broadly fostering solidarity and action in architecture.
All lectures are free and open to the public. Please be sure to register online for each lecture to receive the link to join. For more information on all lectures and to register to attend, visit arch.rice.edu/latest/events and ricedesignalliance.org.
