Dr. Mohammed El Hazzouri, Mount Royal University

Dr. Mohammed El Hazzouri

Nowadays, it is common to see advertisements that include models who belong to ethnic minorities. Ethnic minority consumers like advertisements that include their own ethnic group and appreciate brands that use such advertising. However, ethnic minority consumers may not always prefer inclusive advertising. I will be presenting why this may be the case along with potential solutions.

Did you really just say that!? Responding to prejudice from a social psychological perspective
Dr. Cara C. MacInnis, University of Calgary

Although people commonly report desire to challenge everyday prejudiced comments, actually doing so is uncommon. Why is it so difficult to respond to these comments? And how can we do so effectively? This presentation will involve potential answers to these questions and a chance to “try it out.”
