Free Lecture: Adapting to Diversity to examine intercultural interactions

May 20, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Our societies are defined by difference and diversity. Some argue this diversity brings disharmony, others that it fosters tolerance and mutual respect.

In his free Inaugural lecture, Adapting to Diversity, Professor Richard Crisp, will discuss the psychological science that changes the parameters of this debate.

Richard, a Professor of Psychology at Aston Business School has established an international reputation in the psychology of prejudice and intergroup relations. He will show why he believes that understanding ‘the social mind’ can help promote intercultural exchange, and how, in turn, this can have benefits that extend beyond intercultural relations. This includes reducing prejudice and improving intercultural relations within organisations and businesses, while also enhancing the confidence, creativity, productivity and performance of individuals.
