Project title: Collaborative cross-sectoral research communication as cognitive boosting towards inclusive hiring decisions
What is the project about?
The purpose of this collaborative research communication project is to co-create information material and disseminate crucial knowledge generated through a VR funded project (2020-01204) which explores explanations as to why and how hiring discrimination occurs, through a cross-sectoral collaboration. More specifically the on-going VR funded project examines why discrimination occurs and how individuals interpersonally rationalize hiring decisions. The main research method consists of vignette experiments that record eye movements combined with dialogue. In this cross-sectoral research communication project, we aim to 1) provide information material to the target group (employers) so that they can use information material as tools to improve competencies in making hiring decisions that are more inclusive to counter discrimination, and as a follow-up, in synergy with the on-going VR project 2) evaluate and provide feedback on how disseminated information material can be effectively used by the employers through measuring the cognitive communication effects of information material that are disseminated.
The project's research questions
The project activities will contain four main activities. Through these cross-sectoral workshops the best practices will be identified. Moreover, how information material can be used as a form of interventions will be identified as well.
