Research of Consequence

Great discoveries are not born from a single thought; diverse opinions can lead to the strongest solutions. Dr. Juliana Schroeder studies how disagreements morph into polarization. Dr. Kurt Gray studies the origins of intolerance. Dr. Todd Kashdan studies how can we enhance civility while reducing animosity. We support research that, by discovering the roots of intolerance, transforms fear into curiosity.

Partnership Highlights
