Gender bias in performance feedback
Generating insights to inform business and public policy in tackling gender inequality
Eradicating gender inequality is one of the biggest challenges the world faces. Feedback from women on their working environment can help reduce this (for example, by informing performance-review procedures) but, to date, experiments have focused on gender bias in either giving or receiving feedback; whereas both aspects must be considered simultaneously to determine the overall impact of feedback. This study will run online experiments to investigate how gender bias impacts the type of feedback given, how it is interpreted, and decisions based on it.
