Moving Beyond Diversity to Inclusion: Building Inclusive Schools and Workplaces
Chair/Speakers: Erika Hall, Sarah Townsend, Tessa Dover, Erika Hall, MarYam Hamedani, Tiffany Brannon
Abstract: We investigated whether an organization’s pro-diversity rhetoric influences the psychological and cardiovascular responses of White and Latino men in a hiring simulation. Results indicate that simply mentioning pro-diversity values (vs. not) leads to negative consequences for White job-seekers, but does not strongly influence the cardiovascular or psychological responses for Latino job-seekers.

Turk 2.0: Moving Crowdsourced Data Collection Beyond Traditional Survey Experiments
Chair/Speakers: Jesse Chandler, Leib Litman, Alexander Coppock, Jesse Chandler, Antonio Arechar, Leib Litman
Abstract: We reanalyze 32 original-replication study pairs (encompassing over 100,000 individual survey responses) with a particular focus on the heterogeneity of treatment effects. We assess the extent to which a model of heterogeneity in treatment response estimated on the original dataset predicts the heterogeneity in the replication experiment, and vice-versa.

Beyond Willpower: Finding New Sources of Motivation to Improve Health
Chair/Speakers: Elliot Berkman, Elliot Berkman, Daniel O'Leary, Sarah Raposo, Hedy Kober
Abstract: Models of health behavior and self-control are construct-rich but process-poor. For example, much is known about grit, executive function, and self-efficacy, and far less about the processes by which those constructs interact during health-related decisions. In this talk, we argue that value-based choice is a viable process model of health behaviors and opens new avenues for targeted intervention.

Merging Psychology and Robotics: Evidence for How Humans Perceive Robots
Chair/Speakers: Melissa Ferguson, Eliot Smith, Melissa Ferguson, Bertram Malle, Friederike A. Eyssel
Abstract: Two studies tested manipulations predicted to improve attitudes about robots. People favored ingroup robots (teammates in a competitive game), by giving them less intense blasts of noise. Another study manipulated aspects of perspective taking, but found no effects compared to a control condition. There may be boundary conditions for the effects of manipulations that work with human outgroups.
