RACE AND INVESTMENT
What I’ve Learned - 'to inspire you must do'
PhD Scholar 'Race and Investment'
The purpose of the research is to determine how implicit race bias affects investment decision-making in Australia applying nations and cultural values as the moderator. The research aims to contribute to executive education that protects or prevents reactionary racial bias to make better global leaders.
The research focus is on determining how actors’ implicit attitudes, motives and strategies influence their leadership principles, skills, and business commitments, moving decisions from 'context bound to context free', when making investment decisions for social impact.
