The theme of the Spring 2019 issue of Rotman Management Magazine is “The Art of Change”. Wherever human behaviour is involved, there are opportunities for behavioural insights to influence outcomes. In the issue we look at some of the key areas that demand behaviour change, the opportunities it presents and some of the tools and mindsets required to achieve it. Our four speakers for this event each have an article or interview in the issue.
The speakers included:
Sarah Kaplan, Distinguished Professor of Gender and the Economy, Professor of Strategic Management and Founding Director – Institute for Gender and the Economy at Rotman (GATE), Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto, on “Inequality as an Innovation Challenge”
Mikhail Simutin, Associate Professor of Finance and Associate Director – International Centre for Pension Management at Rotman, Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto, on “The Origins of the Gender Gap”
Dilip Soman, Canada Research Chair in Behavioural Science and Economics, Professor of Marketing and Founding Director – Behavioural Economics in Action at Rotman (BEAR), Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto, on “Harnessing Behavioural Insights: A Playbook”
Melaina Vinski, Lead – Applied Behavioural Insights Practice and Co-Lead – Global Community of Practice, PwC Canada, on “Why Every Organization Benefits from Behavioural Insights”
