The Science of Racial Justice

Tuesday, November 16, 2021, 10:00 AM - Wednesday, November 17, 2021, 5:00 PM EST

Webinar

Presented By

The New York Academy of Sciences

 

Political and social movements in 2020 raised collective consciousness, spotlighting the scourge of racism and bias against marginalized communities. The Black-Lives-Matter and the Me-Too movements highlight the prevalence of discrimination across spheres of society while a rise in hate and divisive rhetoric seem to make the goal of achieving racial equity more and more elusive.

To uncover the underlying causes and consequences of systemic bias, this two-day virtual conference will convene social, behavioral, and cognitive scientists working to understand the dynamics of intergroup relationships and propose intervention strategies that will move us to a more racially justice society.

Topics include basic research on implicit and explicit bias, stereotype threat, intergroup relations, consequences of racist behaviors in health, education, and law enforcement and development of effective intervention strategies.
