Conference Year 
2016

We’ll discuss many of the social science concepts integral to NCWIT’s work, such as unconscious bias, microinequities, stereotype threat, personality penalties, growth mindset, bias interrupters, and intersectionality. We’ll also highlight examples of how these concepts shape NCWIT’s work, including — Thinking like a scientist: A social science perspective on the challenges of inclusion in tech; Research into Practice: How NCWIT research translates into NCWIT resources; and NCWIT Research projects: Past, Present, and Future.
