Ever wondered why your email request for an informational interview went unanswered? Katherine Milkman, PhD, a professor at the Wharton School of Business, talks about how a decision maker's choice to accept emailed requests to meet with candidates with white-male sounding names, while rejecting others, can impact racial and gender diversity in the entry-level stages of academia and employment opportunities. During this show we will discuss policies that can help level the playing field, strategies for working with mentors, and mentoring turn offs.
