Special Series on The Science of Human Diversity
All Special Series Talks are held in the Crick Conference Room, Mandler Hall room 3545.
In the special series of invited lectures, we will explore the psychological science of human diversity, spanning questions including the nature of human diversity, attitudes toward it, reasons for lack of diversity in the workplace, and how diversity affects creativity and the scientific process. Over three academic years (Fall 2016 to Spring 2019) the series will feature nine talks from world famous experts on diversity science, who approach the question from the perspective of social psychology, organizational behavior, child development, and human decision making. This series will investigate case studies including gender, sexual orientation, political ideology, race, and religion, and how we can study the nature and impact of diversity in each case from a scientific perspective.
