HFES White Paper Examines “Authentic Diversity” Within Its Organization


The Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES) has published a new white paper, “Assessing Authentic Diversity in the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society.”

The paper examines diversity within the organization. Specifically, it looks at how seeking diversity that is “authentic” is essential to meeting HFES' goals for inclusion and equity, as well as how human factors and ergonomics expertise can contribute to critical systemic changes. Contents of the white paper include:

  • Recent member demographics
  • A history of relevant efforts in the Society
  • A recent scholarship suggesting sustained interest in the field
  • A discussion on HFES’s potential to grow as a professional home for more scholars and practitioners

The field of human factors and economics can influence the design and implementation of systemic change to embrace diversity. HFES emphasizes the need to better measure, document, and track organizational diversity and inclusion efforts.
