    General Support/Program
Stanford SPARQ (Social Psychological Answers to Real-world Questions) is a center in the social psychology area of the Stanford University Department of Psychology. Practitioners across sectors — from government, business, and nonprofits — work with SPARQ to solve communities’ most pressing problems, with the mission of creating and sharing social psychological insights with people working to improve society. This program grant will help SPARQ in its next phase of research on implicit bias in financial markets with respect to race and gender — conducted in partnership with Illumen Capital and the Stanford Global Projects Center. The grant will help the partnership design an intervention toolkit and set of evaluation tools, where bias may be measured directly before/after training, and then several months later to measure progress.
