WEA-Riverside is proud to welcome Erik J. Girvan, JD, PhD as the Keynote speaker for the 2019 Diversity and SocialJustice Conference.

Erik J. Girvan, JD, PhD is an Associate Professor at the University of Oregon School of Law, where he is affiliated with the Oregon Child Advocacy Project. He earned his JD at Harvard Law School and PhD (Psychology) at the University of Minnesota. His field and laboratory research investigates when and how the attitudes and stereotypes individuals commonly hold about the members of various social categories (e.g., race, ethnicity, gender) impact decisions in professional settings, including labor arbitration, family court, universities, and primary and secondary schools.

Erik has researched, written and taught prolifically regarding:
• Disproportionality in school discipline as a significant challenge to equity in outcomes for children and youth.
• The ways in which explicit and implicit bias affect discipline decision making and the implications of this for intervention.
• How reducing disproportionality requires multicomponent interventions, including effective academic instruction, school-wide positive behavioral interventions and supports, policies with accountability, and training in reducing effects of implicit bias.
