In collaboration with the US Partnership on Mobility from Poverty and the Urban Institute, Stanford SPARQ has created a toolkit to help program managers, evaluators, and other practitioners bolster their efforts to support people on pathways out of poverty.
The online toolkits from Stanford SPARQ: Social Psychological Answers to Real-world Questions distill scientific research into step-by-step instructions and materials for driving psychological, behavioral, and societal change.
Stanford SPARQ just released 10 toolkits that use social psychology to help people take on the world's most pressing problems, but the organization isn't alone when it comes to turning science into solutions.
In a new paper published in Current Directions in Psychological Science, SPARQ director Jennifer Eberhardt and research scientist Rebecca Hetey warn that sharing facts about inequality may make it worse unless you include context and examine institutional practices.
As a SPARQ summer intern, you will gain valuable research experience while exploring how to use psychological science for social change. Although SPARQ internships are unpaid, our faculty and staff offer extensive training and mentoring.
