University of Washington
William & Ruth Gerberding University Professor of American Indian Studies and Psychology
Every year, we seek out a keynote speaker to set the tone and ground us together in our opening plenary. This year, we are delighted to introduce our keynote Dr. Stephanie A. Fryberg.

Dr. Fryberg is a member of the Tulalip Tribes of Washington State, and currently serves as the William & Ruth Gerberding University Professor of American Indian Studies and Psychology at the University of Washington. As a social and cultural psychologist, her primary research interests focus on how social representations of race, culture, and social class influence the development of self, psychological well-being, physical health, and educational attainment.

In 2011, Dr. Fryberg provided testimony to the U.S. Senate Committee on Indian Affairs regarding the impact of racist stereotypes on Indigenous people. That same year, she was inducted into the Multicultural Alumni Hall of Fame at Stanford University. In recognition of her work and service to the field, Dr. Fryberg has received countless awards including: the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues Louise Kidder Early Career Award, Otto Klineberg Intercultural and International Relations Award, University of Arizona Five Star Faculty Award, and the Society for Personality & Social Psychology Service Award.
