Under a new program, Stanford has awarded 20 grants to support innovative initiatives that advance the diversity of the university community and foster inclusion.

The Diversity and First-Gen Office and Stanford SPARQ (Social Psychological Answers to Real-world Questions), a program of the Department of Psychology, won funding to create two digital toolkits: one that will allow organizations to replicate Stanford’s highly successful “Faces of Community” event and another that will allow users at Stanford and other organizations to implement the “fishbowl discussion” technique, which helps participants build bridges of understanding and empathy across cultural divides.
