Black History Spotlight - Making Social Networks More Diverse
Jennifer Richeson is a psychology researcher at Northwestern University who focuses on prejudice, stereotyping and intergroup relations. Her work involves examining issues ranging from how racial bias manifests in the mind, the body and behavior to contending with both subtle and blatant racial violence. The National Science Foundation has supported her work, and in 2006 she was named as a MacArthur "genius" fellow. Richeson delivered an address on psychological perspectives on race relations in the 21st century at NSF in 2015, and afterward shared some insight on her findings.
