Perspective | The pandemic is tragic. It’s also an incredible chance to study human behavior.

Many of our Psychology department faculty have been conducting research during the pandemic to better understand its effects on our lives and relationships. This Washington Post article features new research conducted by Dr. Kristen Shockley and Dr. Malissa Clark focusing on caregiving and parental/family relationships.

It might be the most far-reaching natural experiment in our lifetimes.

US supreme court rules employers cannot discriminate against LGBTQ+ workers

The UGA I-O program could not be more excited by this news! We echo Justice Gorsuch: "... The answer is clear. An employer who fires an individual for being homosexual or transgender fires that person for traits or actions it would not have questioned in members of a different sex. Sex plays a necessary and undisguisable role in the decision, exactly what Title VII forbids.” Today was a huge win for American workers.

Court rules 1964 civil rights law bars employers from discriminating against workers based on sexual orientation or transgender status
