Equitable environments with Maryam Kouchaki

August 2, 2023

Maryam Kouchaki and her co-authors came together in this Harvard Business Review article, “Research: Why Managers Deny Inequity in Their Own Organizations” to provide research regarding inequities in organizations, the “motivated reasoning” phenomenon, and what leaders can do to recognize and tackle inequities. 

Pay gaps, opportunities, and treatment at work are some examples of where inequities can be found in the workplace. Even though billions are being poured into DEI initiatives, there are still inequality traits. In this article, you will learn tactics and initiatives designed to address inequity.

Maryam Kouchaki is an Associate Professor of Management and Organizations at Kellogg School of Management.
