The preconference this year focused on "Resilience and Diversity," highlighting approaches to coping and research focusing on underrepresented groups. We invited researchers and practitioners, whether newcomers or established, to help explore the latest diversity science findings as they related to one's identity and social belonging.
The preconference featured the work of eminent scholars in these areas, including addresses from Early Career and Lifetime Career Award winners and a Best Paper Award from the International Society for Self and Identity's official journal, Self and Identity. The preconference also featured a poster session, data blitz, and virtual mentoring and networking lunch. With a diverse panel of speakers discussing timely issues of social importance, the preconference showcased the relevance and vitality of current self and identity research.
