Despite its significance for individuals, families and the larger society, research on family socialization on issues of race/ethnicity and racism remains limited. The goal of Penn State’s 30th annual Family Symposium, "Family Socialization around Race/Ethnicity and Racism: Advancing Understanding of Racial/Ethnic Inequalities in the United States", is to draw scholars’ attention to the study of family socialization around racial/ethnic inequalities and racism in the U.S., with a focus on family-focused programs, practices and policies that may help to address this national challenge and its widespread and deleterious implications. The 2022 Family Symposium will also examine race and racism in the U.S., racial/ethnic socialization in families of color, and antiracist socialization in white families.
