Seeing is Believing: Using videos to reduce bias and promote inclusiveness
An important question for diversity practitioners is whether creating videos is worth the time and money or whether written stories are equally successful tools. In this presentation, I will provide evidence that developing videos are worth the extra effort. Specifically, I will describe research showing that videos are more effective than written stories at reducing bias. I also will discuss work demonstrating that videos are more inspiring than written stories, and better at encouraging women's interest in science.
