Robert M. Sellers, Vice Provost for Equity and Inclusion, Chief Diversity Officer, Charles D. Moody Collegiate Professor of Psychology, and Professor of Education
Monday, November 30, 2020
12:00-1:00 PM
The present talk/discussion addresses issues of racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity within the discipline of psychology, in general, and the subfield of developmental psychology, in particular. I will present a very brief overview of data illuminating the lack of ethnic/racial diversity within both psychology and developmental psychology as well as provide a few recommendations to the field regarding the importance of ethnic/racial diversity. Afterwards, participants will engage in smaller group discussions to discuss the current status of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within both the Department of Psychology and the developmental area at the University of Michigan using the DEI goals of the University of Michigan’s DEI strategic plan as a conceptual frame for the discussions.
