Women in IT Leadership Series: Warmth and Competence Factor for Women in Leadership

This is a past event.

Pitt IT offers a monthly series for women who work in—or plan to work in—technology at the University of Pittsburgh. Join us on the 2nd Wednesday of each month to learn and network to enhance your career at Pitt. 

Join us in May for an interactive conversation with Heather Leier Murray, Senior Research Analyst at Info-Tech.
We are constantly assessing people on the scale of warmth vs. competence based on their non-verbal signals. At the same time, we are unintentionally sending a continuous stream of non-verbal signals of our own that other people use to judge how warm or competent we are. These two dimensions account for about 80% of our overall evaluations of people, and they shape our behavior toward others and how we feel about them. During this session we will discuss this and how to challenge assumptions — ours and others.

Heather Leier Murray is a Senior Research Analyst in the People & Leadership practice at Info-Tech Research Group. She has a breadth of knowledge in HR topics including talent acquisition, employee relations, performance management, employee experience, leadership coaching and development, and engagement and culture. Heather has worked in the public and private sectors as an HR Generalist for over 15 years, building and leading strategic HR teams and advising leaders on HR best practices. Heather holds a Bachelor of Management in HR and Labor Relations and is an MBA candidate at the University of Fredericton.

Wednesday, May 11 at 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
