Jennifer Eberhardt, a social psychologist at Stanford University, will discuss her 2019 book “Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice That Shapes What We See, Think, and Do.” She is a 2014 MacArthur Genius Grant recipient, has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and was named one of Foreign Policy’s 100 Leading Global Thinkers. She is co-founder and co-director of SPARQ (Social Psychological Answers to Real-World Questions), a Stanford Center that brings together researchers and practitioners to address significant social problems. Eberhardt’s talk is part of the University’s 2020 Community MLK Celebration.
