This webinar will attempt to first define social justice and then examine it in light of the goals of I/O Psychology. This intersection of I/O and social justice will be looked at first from a broad organization perspective in which we will learn the responsibility organizations have to promote social justice. DEI initiatives across a wide variety of organizations will be discussed, along with a critique of their efficacy to combat social injustices. We will then focus on performance management and rejuvenate the debate for and against annual performance management reviews in light of social justice concerns.
Based on the content of the session, participants should be able to:
Describe the responsibility that organizations have to promote social justice.
Describe what organizations are doing in the DEI space and identify which efforts may have the most promise to combat social injustices.
Describe the trends in performance management and the arguments for and against annual performance management reviews.
Explain why good performance management practices help support social justice.
This session is intended for a general audience at a post-graduate level; no specific content knowledge is required.
