Onnie Rogers is an assistant professor of psychology and faculty fellow for the Institute for Policy Research (IPR) at Northwestern University where she directs and the Development of Identities in Cultural Environments (D.I.C.E) research lab. A developmental psychologist and identity scholar, Rogers is interested in the mechanisms through which macro-level structures of inequality are both perpetuated and disrupted at the micro-level of identities and relationships. Her projects examine how children and adolescents make sense of their racial, ethnic and gender identities; how cultural ideologies and stereotypes shape the development and intersectionality of these identities; and the ways in which multiple identities influence social-emotional and academic outcomes.
