Study on Vocal Confidence and Ethnicity

How does a job applicant’s perceived competence, based on their ethnicity, change with the addition of vocal cues?


This study examines how a speaker’s Canadian English accent interacts with their ethnic appearance and vocal confidence level, to affect their perceived competence and hireability in a job interview context. Data collection for this study is complete.

This study is conducted by Yondu Mori (Ph.D. candidate) under the supervision of Dr. Marc D. Pell (marc.pell@mcgill.ca) at McGill University in the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders.
