Addressing and Reducing Inequality through Developmental Science
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.
All fees to attend this workshop will be refunded in full, thanks to the generosity of the William T. Grant Foundation. Participants must sign-up to reserve their spot and attend both days of the workshop. Refunds will be processed within three weeks pending confirmation of attendance at the event. Deadline to register is 9:00am, Sunday, November 8, 2020.
