Are you fascinated by human behavior and why people behave in a particular manner? Are you interested in connecting with practitioners, policy-makers, entrepreneurs, researchers and journalists to discuss and better understand behavioral change? Learn how to create sustainable behavioral change in individuals, organizations, and in our community by interacting with research in Behavioral Science- a broad umbrella of concepts from behavioral economics, decision science, psychology, product design, public policy and other disciplines.
We aim to: 1) help translate academic research into meaningful action and 2) highlight behavioral interventions and initiatives conducted in organizations and throughout our community.
Goals of our meetups include sharing:
A) The latest findings in behavioral science B) How practitioners from diverse sectors are leveraging behavioral science C) How you can effectively use behavioral science
The Master of Behavioral & Decision Sciences program at Penn (https://www.sas.upenn.edu/lps/graduate/mbds) has been approved to organize behavioral science events as part of the Action Design Network (http://www.action-design.org/), a group of over 10,000 members nationally that network and promote behavioral insights from different fields of research including behavioral economics, psychology, and product design.
