Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

PNAS | The mixed effects of online diversity training

We present the results of a large field experiment* with an international organization testing whether a short online diversity training can affect attitudes and workplace behaviors.
Recent meta-analyses* suggest that diversity training can be effective with stronger effects on cognitive learning and weaker effects on attitudinal and behavioral measures, albeit with significant heterogeneity (6⇓-8).

Racial bias** acknowledgment.

We also asked participants questions about perceptions of their own bias and their perceptions of other people's biases with regards to racial stereotyping. The questions we asked were as follows: "To what extent do you believe that you exhibit racial stereotyping?" and "To what extent do you believe that the average person exhibits racial stereotyping?" Participants responded to each question on a scale from 1 (Not at all) to 7 (Very Much). We again calculated the difference between these two items to measure participants' willingness to acknowledge that their own racial biases may match those of the general population.
