"I am personally committed to diversity, and strive to use my voice to advocate for underrepresented groups and to support inclusivity. I believe that we can learn so much from each other by sharing our experiences and being open to ideas and perspectives different from our own.
Every identity is important and valuable."
Evelyn is a social psychologist who is passionate about using social science to inform how we engage with the world around us. Her research on how people detect and discuss cues to racial bias has been published in peer-reviewed journals, and her work on successful strategies for confronting racial bias was funded by the National Science Foundation. Evelyn prioritizes a translational approach to research, as she strives to be a bridge between the academic communities doing research and people on the ground who desire to use those insights to inform their work. She leverages this passion in her role as Senior Consultant for Paradigm Strategy Inc., where she partners with companies in entertainment, tech, financial services, and beyond to develop and implement inclusive practices.
A self-described data geek, Evelyn loves using data to tackle big questions about creating and sustaining inclusive environments, and she has led collaborative teams in this effort at several different institutions. Evelyn also loves to talk, and she regularly presents across the country and internationally on her own research, as well as on how scientific findings can help us respond to and understand issues of the day related to race, identity, and intergroup relations. Evelyn holds a B.A. from Northwestern University, an M.A. from University of Illinois at Chicago, and a Ph.D. from Indiana University.
