  • Solving diversity's branding problem - MIT Sloan School of Management
    preaching to the choir They re the low hanging fruit and the people who get it already Gosline s Feb 12 address was part of the annual summit developed by the Institute Community and Equity Office with participation from MIT leadership As keynote speaker she applied her background in marketing to the goals of diversity and inclusiveness The psychological factors at play in how we choose and judge consumer products she said are also evident in how we interact with each other and in our sense of self Much of Gosline s talk concerned cognitive associations and heuristics the shortcuts provided by the subconscious in decision making and assessing information that is often at the root of bias She proposed a four step plan for mindful leadership saying the road to inclusiveness is about becoming conscious of the heuristics at play identifying them and working to address them The plan includes setting goals being cognizant of your tone and personal impact harnessing the power of the narrative and learning to be resilient recognizing that everyone makes mistakes Diversity and inclusion only works if you in your authentic self is at the core of the message that you share with others and that you respect and appreciate people s own authentic selves Gosline said To be your best leader you can be is not about being fake it s not about us all looking or acting alike Rather it s about thinking mindfully and deliberately about how you want to affect the world every minute of the day At MIT Gosline called for diversity and goals of inclusion to be incorporated throughout all activities just as ethics education is incorporated in all curriculums rather than as a separate course Parallels with consumer research As a professor of marketing Gosline focuses on

  • Retired U.S. General Stanley McChrystal talks leadership strategy - MIT Sloan School of Management
    TV I could watch all of them and I could actually listen to the radio transmissions and talk to them if I wanted But I never did that because I m not on the ground I m not the right person to make the decision It takes more discipline than ever Before you decentralized because you didn t have a choice Now you have to choose More than ever sort of a constant conversation is essential If you have subordinates at some distance from you and you don t know them and a difficult situation comes up and they raise this up and you haven t built that confidence in them they haven t got the confidence in you then it s very hard to say Hal s down there let Hal handle it Or for you to give sort of nuanced instructions If you don t know the person and you say OK Susan I know we ve never met and we don t know each other at all Use your best judgment And if I don t know you at all Use your best judgment to me is a huge question mark What the leader has to do is create a constant conversation so this information and familiarity and relationships are being constantly nurtured And then what happens is when you have this thing arise you don t have to make the decision You do know Susan down there you do know Frank at this place and they know you And they don t have to ask And if they did ask you can say Use your best judgment When you re at the top build a good kitchen cabinet Everywhere you go people are sort of in angst before you arrive and their responses are based on who you are and how you ask So as you get senior information will come up and you have this extraordinary power to pull information up to ask for information But the reality is it tends to get homogenized on the way up and so there s a great danger that what you get is not unfiltered information And it s not because people are evil It s just because it happens in the system And so you ve got to develop processes to prevent that There are a number of things you can do The first is you ve got to get other people to help you do it In the Army I had a number of people who were my confidants who were out on the battlefield in places who were giving me unadulterated information directly My sergeant major was probably the best He didn t travel around with me as a buddy He roamed the battlefield He could go places where people would talk to him and there wasn t the same entourage and security and foolishness So he could give you a sense of it He would send me a long email every night no matter

    remarks MIT Dean for Graduate Education Christine Ortiz shared some of her memories of being a young faculty member Ortiz has been at MIT since 1999 and said she was lucky to find senior tenured women who mentored her along the way Since I came to MIT women have been embedded throughout every aspect of academic life I feel very lucky that all of the work that the women of MIT did before I arrived led to that she said In the fall of 2014 MIT had 2 055 women students enrolled as undergraduates 46 percent of the total student population There are also 2 171 female graduate students or 32 percent of that population according to Ortiz She said that the implicit bias theme is critical because it affects the entire range of professional activities recruitment promotion tenure retention graduation and creating a climate of inclusion at MIT A discussion of implicit bias can be a difficult conversation Ortiz said Because it does require quite a bit of self reflection I m so grateful this conference is providing the space for us to have those difficult and sometimes uncomfortable conversations and raise the awareness of the environment we all work in so we can move forward develop actionable strategies and serve as catalysts for change Breaking the mold Jan Fields the former president of McDonald s USA and one of two keynote speakers held herself up as an example of a woman who has followed a non traditional path and overcome bias Jan Fields former McDonald s USA president Fields who had a 30 year plus career at McDonald s recounted how she started working at her local McDonald s when she was a young mom trying to put herself through college The eighth of nine children in a family from Indiana she was anxious to become a lawyer On her first day of work she started off making the french fries the worst freaking job in the world and went home and cried to her husband She rallied and went back the next day where she was placed at the front counter Fields thrived on taking people s food orders and kept getting promoted And promoted again Fields said I kept telling them I m only here for a short time I m going back to school Finally after eight years in management Fields found she was making more money than she would have had she pursued a law career You never know the turns your life takes I never would have thought of McDonald s My family was ashamed when I did it They said You can do better than that Now they want to borrow money she laughed During her career Fields was named to lists of the most powerful women in business by both Forbes and Fortune At the end of her tenure in 2012 she was responsible for 14 000 McDonald s restaurants Fields never did finish school and said that she s not
