Exploring discrepancies between anti-prejudice values and behavior

People with egalitarian values are more likely to hypothetically confront prejudice but less likely to do so in actual situations

In today’s diverse workplaces, many organizations have implemented diversity and inclusion initiatives to foster an inclusive and respectful environment. While employees receive training on recognizing and confronting prejudice or discrimination, a noticeable gap exists between their stated intentions and actual behavior.

Interestingly, those who hold strong anti-prejudice values often believe they do not require training because they already consider themselves attentive to discrimination. In a joint research effort by international scholars, Eran Halperin, Anna Kende, and Tamar Saguy, we aimed to unravel this phenomenon and shed light on its underlying causes. The findings of this study were recently published in Nature’s Scientific Reports journal.
