Dean's Circle donors are invited to participate in a virtual conversation featuring Danielle Li, PhD ’12, Class of 1922 Career Development Professor and Associate Professor, Technological Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Strategic Management, for an interactive discussion about her research around the use of automation in hiring and how more dynamic models can combat the inequities presented in more traditional models.
Firms are increasingly turning to algorithms to help them make hiring decisions as they have the ability to streamline and expedite the application review process and can identify key attributes of the applicants that may predict future success. However, these algorithms often provide an advantage to people from groups who have traditionally been successful and therefore limit opportunities for applicants from underrepresented groups.
The MIT Sloan Dean’s Circle honors our alumni and friends who choose to make leadership gifts to the MIT Sloan Annual Fund in any given fiscal year (July 1-June 30). With a gift of $2,500 or more ($1,000 or more for those who have graduated in the last four years), have dedicated a higher level of commitment, responsibility, and leadership at MIT Sloan. Dean’s Circle events celebrate the generosity of this essential group of donors, who help foster groundbreaking ways for the MIT Sloan community to create value for the world. Invest in the next generation of principled, innovative leaders and support the future of MIT Sloan and become a Dean’s Circle donor today!
