Victoria Plaut comes from a Colombian-American family, speaks three languages, and has lived in three countries and in multiple U.S. regions. Armed with a personal background in cultural variation and relations, she developed an interest in diversity at a very early age. After receiving a BA at Harvard, an MSc at the London School of Economics, and a PhD at Stanford, she became an assistant professor at Holy Cross, the University of Georgia, and then UC Berkeley.

Dr. Plaut’s research on diversity, culture, and inclusion addresses the challenges and opportunities of working, living, and learning in diverse environments. Recent projects include studies related to colorblind vs. multicultural models of diversity, diversity climate, diversity resistance, perceptions of inclusion, gender diversity and recruitment, and models of deafness and disability, among others.
