respecting differing opinions and backgrounds
Join us for a virtual conversation with Stanford psychology professor and author Jennifer Eberhardt who will discuss her book, “Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice That Shapes What We See, Think, and Do.” An acclaimed and powerful examination of unconscious racial bias from one of the world’s leading experts the book has been selected as the second title for our collaboration with the Palo Alto Library’s virtual Palo Alto Reads series.
An estimated 70% of people experience impostor feelings at some point in their lives. It is widespread across academic campuses, and Stanford is no exception. A campus survey by Professor Margot Gerritsen showed that many students experience the feelings or fear of being a fake, of not having what it takes, the fear of disappointing advisors, of being "found out" to not be as smart as they were thought to be. She will share her findings and some personal experiences with the impostor syndrome, and discuss some ways to overcome it, or at least make steps toward it.
How is racial bias coded into technological systems? Can technology advance racial justice? How can scholars and advocates collaborate at the intersection of race and technology?
In this session, we will explore everyday implicit, or unconscious, biases in the workplace: how to identify bias, how to address bias, and ultimately, how to make our unconscious biases conscious. We will cover the literature on bias and inclusion in education, academic medicine specifically, and the workplace more generally as we work together to building a more inclusive culture in our own spaces.
Join our Diversity Works discussion with Allison Anoll, assistant professor of Political Science at Vanderbilt University.

They are experts, and they aren’t sure you are. In the first of our Clayman Conversations Online, journalist Nhi Le and scholar Moira Weigel will discuss online debate culture from a feminist perspective. Is the demand for free and open debate online really as neutral as it often presents itself? How are dominant power structures replicated or challenged in online debate culture?
