Further details

Please join us to celebrate the winners of the Exeter Prize 2020 2-4pm on the 19th April 2021. J. Aislinn Bohren, Alex Imas, and Michael Rosenberg wrote the winning paper “The Dynamics of Discrimination: Theory and Evidence,” published in The American Economic Review. The paper highlights a need for studies of dynamics of performance and judgment within the female discrimination literature. It demonstrates the importance of the presence of objective evidence regarding performance at early stages of the interaction to offset biases and prejudices – an observation with important policy implication in many organizations. The winning paper will be presented by J. Aislinn Bohren. Following the talk, we are delighted to have Iris Bohnet, Kareem Haggag, Alex Imas, and Michelle Ryan join a panel discussion on the past, present, and future of research on gender and racial discrimination. There will be a short Q&A session after both the presentation and the panel, with a 5 minute break after the end of the presentation Q&A. You will be sent a zoom link closer to the time for this event. If you have any queries regarding this event please email
