Clara Wilkins was featured in the Centering Voices column of the Harvard University Women in Psychology newsletter:

Dr. Wilkins is a UW Psychology Associate Professor and directs the Social Perceptions and Intergroup Attitudes Lab. Her lab focuses on understanding in-equality and how social hierarchies are maintained. She examines perceptions of bias against dominant social groups (e.g. anti-male, anti-White and anti-Christian bias) and how these perceptions affect intergroup relations and discrimination against disadvantaged groups (women, people of color and LGBTQ+ people). She is also interested in how variation in physical appearance (e.g. how stereo-typically Black or Asian people look) affects outcomes for racial minorities.  

Women in Psychology (WiP) at Harvard University is an organization with over 60 graduate student, post-doc, employee, and faculty members. The primary aims of WiP are to encourage inclusion and diversity in psychological science and to provide support, resources, and community for group members.
