Creating and fostering more gender equal organizations is essential, yet challenging. Persistent cultural dynamics and deeply held individual beliefs are some of the key root causes of the inequality we see today, but research shows that de-biasing people’s minds is time-consuming and expensive. Focusing on structural solutions through behavioral design is a cutting-edge and proven approach to promoting gender equality.
Gender equality expert Siri Uotilla will discuss the latest insights from behavioral research and show how they can be translated into practical tools that advance equality in the workplace through improved sourcing, hiring, promotion and retention of talent.
Siri Uotila is a research scholar at the Women and Public Policy Program at the Harvard John F. Kennedy School of Government. She is an expert in promoting gender equality within organizations and in translating academic research into practical interventions to advance women in society. Siri has worked with Fortune 500 companies, nonprofits, and local governments to improve gender equality through such projects as researching culture and leadership at senior levels; designing a paid parental leave policy; and spearheading legislative advocacy to increase women’s representation on corporate boards. She also has experience in management consulting.
Siri has an MBA from Harvard Business School, a Master in Public Policy from the Harvard Kennedy School, and a B.A. in Chemistry and Physics from Harvard College.
