Overview
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.

for the Toward a World Free of Nuclear Weapons project  
Former secretary of state George Shultz’s Toward a World Free of Nuclear weapons project has renewed and catalyzed worldwide interest in reestablishing the vision of, and taking steps toward, significant reductions in global nuclear arsenals and their ultimate elimination. In the coming year, Secretary Shultz, renowned physicist Sidney Drell, and former Ambassador James Goodby plan to enlist the support of countries that have nuclear weapons capabilities and those that are potential nuclear weapon states to encourage step-by-step progress toward a reduction in the role of nuclear weapons worldwide. Such steps could include beginning joint aerial monitoring for nuclear weapons testing and developing methods to encourage active participation of the nine nuclear weapons states in accelerating disarmament.
for the Woods Institute Leopold Fellowship  
This grant to the Woods Institute at Stanford University would provide communication training to outstanding scientists working in a broad range of environmental fields. The goal is to impart the skills necessary for scientists to translate their knowledge in non-academic settings in a manner that is understandable to decision makers, media, and the public.
