The UCLA Lab School Bruno Seros-Ulloa Guest Speaker Series 


What Children Can Teach Us About How to Have Adult Conversations
Featuring Dr. Evelyn Carter, Research Scientist at the UCLA Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Join us for this free event open to UCLA Lab School parents, alumni families and the broader community.

Dr. Evelyn Carter is a social psychologist who is passionate about using social science to inform how we engage with the world around us. Her research on how people detect and discuss cues to racial bias has been published in peer-reviewed journals and funded by the National Science Foundation.

In her current work with the UCLA Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Dr. Carter harnesses her passion for using evidence-based methods to create and sustain inclusive climates within universities and organizations. She has led several collaborative research teams across the country. She also regularly presents at universities and organizations on her own research as well as on how scientific findings can help us respond to and understand issues of the day related to race, identity, and intergroup relations.

This lecture will focus on understanding the positive ways in which children understand and talk about identity, and how we, as adults, can avoid socializing them out of those practices.

Dr. Carter holds a B.A. from Northwestern University, an M.A. from University of Illinois at Chicago, and a Ph.D. from Indiana University.
