UCLA School of Law

Keynote speaker Scott Page, Ph.D., Professor of Complex Systems, Political Science, and Economics, University of Michigan
Is “diversity science” really a science, and if so what is its appropriate object of study? The first UCLA Diversity Research Conference will provide a platform for scholarly exchanges on developing research on diversity and its relationship with productivity, creativity and positive outcomes; diversity science; and the meaning of diversity. Participate in this day long and dynamic conversation.
Registration is free and open to all, but please reply to Pammela Adenika (firstname.lastname@example.org) by June 7 to assure a seat and a lunch.
This conference is funded by a major grant from the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, and co-sponsored by the Deans of the Divisions of Physical Sciences, Life Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities; as well as the Williams Institute on Sexual Orientation Law & Policy, the UCLA Center for the Study of Women; the David Geffen School of Medicine; and the Institute of American Cultures
