Harold Goldstein,

Dr. Harold Goldstein, professor of Industrial and Organizational Psychology at Baruch College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York is recognized for his scholarship and professional contributions toward increasing fairness and equity in organizations. His scholarship over the past 20 years has focused on improving the fairness and hiring outcomes for women and minority job applicants. This work has been acknowledged with several of the top awards from the professional associations in Industrial and Organizational Psychology.

Recently, Dr. Goldstein was part of a team lead by former U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson in his role as Special Adviser on Equal Justice in the Courts that conducted an in-depth review of the New York State Courts’ policies, practices, rules and programs as they relate to issues of racial and other bias. The recommendations presented to Chief Judge Janet DiFiore by Secretary Johnson and his team center on operational issues within the court system’s authority to carry out administratively and unilaterally to advance diversity and inclusion within the court system and ensuring equal justice under the law.

Also contributing to this effort were Charles Scherbaum (professor of Industrial and Organizational Psychology at Baruch College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York), Elliott Larson (GC alumnus - Industrial and Organizational Psychology) and Ken Yusko (Department of Psychology, University of Maryland).
