Scientific Institutions are Going Woke – and Hemorrhaging Credibility

Chris Ferguson, a psychology professor at Stetson University, published an op-ed in Newsweek regarding institutional capture of some of our most highly regarded medical institutions, including those dedicated to mental health. Neutrality and objectivity is paramount in science, and the turn these institutions are taking is not something we should take lightly.

Voters Don’t Like Crazy

Chris Ferguson published another op-ed in the NY Daily News: Voters don’t like crazy: The lessons of November 2021  

We love his balanced approach and rebuttal of dichotomous thinking.

Rethinking Diversity Training

Chris Ferguson, Professor of Psychology at Stetson University, explains that diversity trainings done well aid in establishing trust and building positive workplace culture. Exercise caution, however, as choosing the wrong program could lead to division and a hostile work culture.
