Addressing and Reducing Inequality through Developmental Science

A 2020 Special Topic Workshop | June 12 - 13, 2020 | St. Louis, Missouri, USA
Event Details


Economic inequalities have profound implications for the social, behavioral, and academic lives of infants, children, and adolescents. This interdisciplinary workshop will bring together scholars from psychology, education, sociology, economics, and public policy to move the field of developmental science forward on understanding the causes of inequality and courses of action to reduce their impact. Through invited panels, hands-on workshops, data blitz talks, poster presentations, and structured conversations, this workshop will highlight innovative research on children’s thinking about economics and inequality and the programs and policies that address inequality in children’s lives.
