Diversity trainings are some of the most common interventions used at organisations to promote social inclusion. As a part of my project, titled, ‘Bias Circumvention: A scientific evaluation of gender diversity training’ I will focus on evaluating gender diversity trainings and designing a prototype of an effective gender diversity training.
For the purpose of this project, three studies will be conducted- 1) – Analysing implicit gender bias training through postcolonial feminist lens. This study will help generate knowledge about implicit gender bias training for gender diversity from a postcolonial feminist lens and will help set up the assessment criteria for gender diversity trainings which will further contribute towards studies 2 & 3, 2) Assessing bias circumvention outcomes of three gender diversity trainings. The results of this study will aid in determining the parameters of effective gender diversity interventions through comparison of the various gender diversity training methods and 3) Conceptualisation of postcolonial feminist gender diversity training prototype. With the criteria for gender diversity training obtained from study #1 and parameters for gender diversity training obtained from study #2, study #3 will be aimed at conceptualising intersectionally-sound, postcolonial feminist gender diversity training prototype.
