Please join us Wednesday January 25th at 4pm ET in learning about Dr. Kathleen Bogarts journey in Science. Kathleen Bogart, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Psychology at Oregon State University. As a person with a facial paralysis, she is passionate about researching, educating, and writing about ableism, or disability prejudice. Dr. Bogart received the first annual Social Personality and Health Network Diversity in Research Award and was named OSU Honors College Eminent Mentor in 2022. An advocate for people with rare disorders and disabilities, she serves on several boards including the American Psychological Association Committee on Disability Issues in Psychology and the Moebius Syndrome Foundation Scientific Advisory Board. Passionate about disability community-building, she is the co-founder of the Disability Advocacy and Research Network (DARN!) for social and personality psychologists who have and/or specialize in disability.

In 2019, she co-edited the Journal of Social Issues special issue on Ableism. She is an Associate Editor of Personality and Social Psychology Review and Rehabilitation Psychology. Her work has been featured in the The Atlantic, New York Times, Time, Science Magazine, Financial Times, and Inside Higher Ed. Dr. Bogart presents to and consults with international academic, general, and TEDx audiences about disability awareness, disability as diversity, and facial paralysis, and she blogs about these topics for Psychology Today.
