"The Transformative Power of Diversity in Education is Enormous": Challenges and Opportunities in the 21st Century

Resources from the first annual lecture in the Child Development in a Diverse Majority Society Lecture Series held at the University of Virginia.

It is expected that by 2044, the United States will become a majority-minority society, with Non-Hispanic Whites comprising less than half of the U.S. population. As the nation prepares for this transition, the Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD) has launched an annual Lecture Series entitled Child Development in a Diverse Majority Society with the inaugural lecture at the Curry School of Education at the University of Virginia (UVA) in July 2018.

Featured Speaker:

  • Joanna Lee Williams, Ph.D., Associate Professor, University of Virginia


  • Natalia Palacios, Ph.D., Associate Professor, University of Virginia
  • Genevieve Siegel-Hawley, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Virginia Commonwealth University
