Dr. Bernardo M. Ferdman will be making various presentations at this year’s April conference of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology, as follows:

Culture and Diversity: Current and Future Theoretical and Practical Approaches
As culture and diversity become increasingly important, so does the need to understand the impact of both surface- and deep-level differences. The wealth of existing research is beginning to be integrated and refined. Panelists will explore issues in culture and diversity research and practice, and the benefits of continued collaboration.
