While diversity and inclusion programs have improved in effectiveness over time, Catalyst research finds that over a third of racially/ethnically diverse women believe that D&I programs fail to address subtle gender and racial bias. In this provocative session, Avon's Chief Diversity Officer, Leslie Mays will make opening remarks and Catalyst's Vice President, Diverse Women & Inclusion Research, Katherine Giscombe, Ph.D. will lead a session on the persistent barrier of subtle bias, in order to develop potential solutions at this Catalyst member event hosted by Avon Products, Inc.

We seek experienced diversity and inclusion professionals to attend this forum, and ask that they also extend this invitation to a woman of color line manager who can share her experiences and perspectives. Contact Audrey Gallien for more information.

I am a professor of psychology at Columbia University in New York who has published research on the intersectional of race, gender and sexual orientation in the workplace. I am also a Black women in academia. I just came across this event while reading one of your reports. I would welcome the opportunity to attend other events and also seek opportunities for collaborative research.

PLease feel free to contact me or, at the very least, please add me to your mailing list.

all best,

Valerie Purdie-Vaughns
