Event Details:

For the final installment of the Clayman Institute's Spring 2011 Event Series, Katherine W. Phillips, Associate Professor of Management and Organizations at the Kellogg School of Management, will discuss the intersection of racial and gender stereotypes and how they affect the way we respond to Black women in American society. The talk will challenge the traditional double-jeopardy hypothesis which suggests that Black women should be particularly disadvantaged.

Professor Phillips is an alum of the Stanford Graduate School of Business, and is currently a visiting faculty member in Organizational Behavior at the Stanford GSB as well as a visiting scholar at the Center for Advanced Studies in Behavioral Sciences at Stanford (CASBS).

This is event is co-sponsored by the Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity (CCSRE), Feminist Studies, and Sociology. It is free and open to all.
