CDS 2024 Invited pre-conference workshop:
Why Basic Cognitive Developmental Science Needs Diversity: Theoretical Value and Practical Considerations
Co-organized by Tara Mandalaywala and Jasmine DeJesus
Pre-conference date/time: Thursday, March 21, 2024, 9am-4pm
Pre-conference description: This invited pre-conference aims to bring together scholars from a variety of backgrounds to have an open and candid discussion about diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within the field and society. This workshop builds on our engaging conversation at the 2022 CDS meeting and highlights both the theoretical value of working with diverse communities and advancing the scholarship of researchers from diverse backgrounds, as well as important practical considerations for high quality research and career advancement. Our two invited speakers, Drs. Richard Prather, and Leher Singh will speak on these topics.
Additional pre-conference information: Coffee and refreshments will be provided. To keep workshop costs down, lunch will be on your own. There are many food options in a wide price range near the conference venue. We encourage workshop participants to continue the conversation over lunch!
