Madison’s Rotary Club announces presenter for ‘How to Change Behaviors in Diversity’ 

The Rotary Club of Madison has announced the speaker for its luncheon on Wednesday, July 19 at the Park Hotel. Speaker Markus Brauer’s presentation, “How to Change Behaviors in Diversity,” will take place from 12:35–1:05 p.m. following the club’s general business meeting at 12:10 p.m.

Markus Brauer is a professor in the Psychology Department at UW–Madison, with secondary affiliations in the Wisconsin School of Business and the School of Medicine and Public Health Research, which uses rigorous scientific methods to study issues related to diversity, equity, and inclusion — often referred to as diversity science.
