The Culture, Diversity, & Intergroup Relations Lab (CDIRL) is based at Berkeley Law. The overarching goal of our research is to understand psychological processes related to diversity and inclusion in order to address the challenges of working, living, and learning in diverse environments. Our work is therefore relevant to legal, organizational, and educational settings. We focus on a range of identities and issues (e.g., race and ethnicity, gender, national origin, sexuality, disability, religion, and intersectionality). The primary focus of our lab is on people?s beliefs about and reactions to diversity. For example, our research has examined the effects of different models of diversity, such as multiculturalism (acknowledge group differences) and colorblindness (ignore group differences) on majority and minority group members; and how the diversity climate of a workplace or learning environment affects feelings of inclusion, and in turn, participation, engagement, and support for diversity.
This is a 1 year contract with the possibility of extension
