Karlene Hanko, PhD, Joins Slover Linett as Research Analyst

June 30, 2011

Please join us in welcoming Karlene Hanko to the Slover Linett team. Hanko, who earned her doctorate in social psychology at Cornell University, specializes in understanding everyday judgment and decision-making processes and the interplay between the individual and the social world. Hanko replaces outgoing research analyst Eileen Bevis, who is leaving to pursue her interests in comparative international research.

Hanko comes to Slover Linett from Richard Day Research in Evanston, Illinois, where she designed studies, oversaw data collection, and analyzed both qualitative and quantitative data for clients in a range of for-profit and non-profit sectors.

At Slover Linett, Hanko will apply her advanced research design and analytical skills to both higher education and arts & culture projects. She will also leverage her background as a scholar of decision-making processes and social dynamics to help the firm’s clients understand how people select among various cultural or educational programs and how they experience those programs once they’ve selected them.

“I’m excited to apply my academic training in psychology to my work at Slover Linett,” Hanko says. “It’ll be great to bring both methodological and discipline knowledge to questions about how people engage with formal and informal educational offerings, from art museums to business schools.”

Cheryl Slover-Linett is delighted to have Hanko on board. “Karlene brings a fresh perspective and wonderful skills to our practice. She’ll enhance our ability to get at the big picture, and she’s equally comfortable in market research, program evaluation, and outcomes assessment.”

In addition to welcoming Karlene, the Slover Linett team reluctantly bids farewell to research analyst Eileen Bevis, who will be conducting global research on consumers, companies, and markets at Euromonitor International. “We’re going to miss Eileen on every level,” says Slover-Linett. “She’s been a terrific colleague, and we all wish her great success in the next phase of her research career.”

We invite colleagues and clients to introduce themselves to Karlene by email or by phone at (773) 348-9200, ext. [62].

Multiculturalism is key for creating inclusive arts experiences


Last month, Coca-Cola aired its now-famous Super Bowl ad depicting people from various racial, ethnic, and cultural groups singing “America the Beautiful” together in different languages. Among the instant outpouring of polarized reactions to this ad rang much praise for its depiction of a multicultural America. Yet the ad provoked a slew of negative responses as well. Many of the ad’s detractors questioned whether this multicultural America could ever feel as cohesive as an America whose citizens speak a common language, and therefore have taken great strides toward assimilating into a common culture.
