The Intersectionality of Technology, Investment and Implicit Bias

Stanford Angels & Entrepreneurs, together with Stanford SPARQ, Illumen Capital, Stanford GSB Center for Social Innovation, Ulu Ventures and Impact Experience hosted a discussion on The Intersectionality of Technology, Investment and Implicit Bias.

The panelists discussed innovations in technology, investment trends, and ground breaking results from a recent Stanford study on race and investment just published by the National Academy of Sciences about how race influences professional investors’ financial judgments. The study highlights a shocking and nuanced paradox in how asset allocators interact with fund managers of color.

  • Prof. Jennifer Eberhardt, CoDirector SPARQ, MacArthur Genius, National Academy of Sciences member, author of Biased
  • Miriam Rivera, Managing Director Ulu Ventures, Cofounder Stanford A&E, ex Google Vice President
