Jennifer Richeson named a 2015 Guggenheim Fellow

April 13, 2015

Jennifer Richeson has been selected for a 2015 Fellowship by the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation. She was one of 175 Fellows selected from more than 3100 applicants. During her Guggenheim fellowship period, Professor Richeson will integrate her research with relevant literature in organizational psychology, sociology, and political science in a book project on the paradox of diversity. She will ask how actual and perceived increases in racial/ethnic diversity can yield both more egalitarian and more exclusionary racial attitudes, and how those attitudes can in turn influence processes such as social isolation, creativity and task performance.

Congratulations Jenn!
