In this seminar, Oliver Hauser presents an early-stage working paper that examines the role of race and gender in performance appraisals. Performance appraisals are commonplace in most organizations and tend to affect employees’ pay and career advancement. Based on a quasi-experiment in a large multi-national organization, Oliver analyzes to what degree employees’ identity influences their self-evaluations (supply side) and/or their manager’s evaluation of them (demand side).
