How Stereotypes Shape Women's Identities and Careers
Friday, January 18, 2013, 1:30-2:15 p.m., Room 223

Although women's power in the workplace is at an all-time high, many still do not pursue high-status opportunities or career paths that stray from traditional gender roles. Research is finding that gender stereotypes form from a young age and appear to be influenced strongly by a mother's role in both the workplace and home. New studies that explore how these attitudes develop are helping personality and social psychologists chart new routes for women in society.

Giving, Getting, and Gratitude
Saturday, January 19, 2013, 8:45-9:30 a.m., Room 223

The acts of giving and receiving have many social facets that go beyond mere happiness over receiving something new. New work suggests that young children often know how to best help others, and that basic biological functions, like sleep, influence feelings of gratitude. Researchers are further finding a wealth of data on how to better make purchases and appreciate the benefits of giving from why people prefer to spend money on others than themselves to why gifts of experience are more fulfilling than material ones.

  • Amie M. Gordon, University of California, Berkeley
  • Amit Kumar, Cornell University

Bullying, Relationships, and Personality: How the Social Media World Maps to Social Reality
Saturday, January 19, 2013, 1:30-2:15 p.m., Room 223

Online social networks can reveal much about people and their personalities. Just how much is an area under increasing study. Social media sites offer new opportunities for interpersonal communications, some of which can be damaging, for example, spurring cyber-bullying among teens or negatively affecting romantic relationships. This press conference will present new research that looks at how people's online environments and relationships reflect and influence their real-world ones, in addition to how social media tools more generally shape our communication.

Speakers:

  • Jonah Berger, University of Pennsylvania
