REGISTRATION IS CLOSED
Join our Diversity Works discussion with Melissa Abad, sociologist at the Stanford VMware Women's Leadership Innovation Lab.
Social scientists have long debated whether shared racial/ethnic identity between researcher and participants is a liability or asset in data collection and data analysis. Melissa Abad’s research at the Stanford Women’s Leadership Innovation Lab has allowed her to interact with Latinx, Asian American, and Black women in tech and finance. Dr. Abad’s presentation will detail the barriers and tools she uses to gain access and build trust among the three groups, as well as predominantly white spaces. In doing so, she shows how intersectionality, as data collection framework, is put in to practice.
Join the virtual session at 11:45AM on Thurs., May 14 via Zoom. A Zoom link will be emailed to you once you register for the session.
