Biographical details

I am a Professor in Social Psychology. I graduated with a PhD from the University of Sydney in 1997. My research expertise concerns the development of effective strategies to promote cooperative intergroup relations. I have led a number of prejudice and stigma reduction projects involving contact and recategorization strategies, and have received competitive funding from the Australian Research Council, Office of Learning and Teaching and ViCHealth. I am also the Director of the Sydney University Psychology of Intergroup Relations (SUPIR) Research Lab, and hold the position of Degree Coordinator of the Bachelor of Liberal Studies (BLAS) in the Faculty of Science.

Across my academic career, I have published over 60 papers in peer-reviewed publications with over 1550 citations (Google Scholar) and 90 conference presentations. I have supervised two post-docs, 15 postgraduates and over 50 honours students to completion.

I have also been lead author on four editions of a developmental psychology textbook (White, Hayes & Livesey, 2005; 2010; 2013; 2015) that has had substantial national impact with over 20,000 copies sold. I also maintain a research active role in the scholarship of teaching having been awarded six highly competitive research-teaching grants (> $500K). In recognition of the quality embodied by my contribution to the research scholarship of learning and teaching, I have been the successful co-recipient (with Dr Caleb Owens) of the 2012 Vice Chancellor’s Excellence in Teaching Award and the 2013 OLT Teaching Citation Award for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning.

Research interests

I am recognised internationally for integrating and evaluating social cognitive strategies to reduce prejudice and stigma. In particluar, I have developed effective E-contact tools to improve intergroup relations:

a) E-contact, real groups and long-term bias reduction

My ARC-funded DIEC study (2009-11) program advanced a new conceptual framework proposing that cognitive strategies such as dual identity recategorization provides the necessary mechanism to enhance the benefits of social strategies such as E-contact. For example, achieving a common goal via contact is facilitated by the formation of a common identity between minority and majority members. This conceptual integration successfully promoted and sustained (at a 1-year follow-up) bias reduction for both Muslims and Christians even under conditions of continued religious segregation (White & Abu-Rayya, 2012; 2014; White, Abu-Rayya, Bliuc, & Faulkner, 2015). Previous contact research had been limited by its focus on singular, short-term strategies.

b) E-contact, pre-programmed outgroups and short-term bias reduction

I have also developed and evaluated innovative E-contact or computer-mediated contact tools, that involves a synchronous 15-minute Internet text chat between in- and outgroup members. Most importantly, both formats of E-contact are theoretically-framed by Allport's facilitating conditions of cooperation and have received empirical support amongst Muslims and Christians (White & Abu-Rayya, 2012; 2014); homosexuals and heterosexuals (White, Verrelli, Maunder, & Kervinen, in press); Protestants and Catholics (White, Turner, Verrelli, Harvey, & Hanna, in press); and mentally healthy people and people with schizophrenia (Maunder, White, & Verrelli, in press). In our technological age, my E-contact strategies will play an increasingly significant role in advancing intergroup relations research, especially in situations where outgroup anxiety is high and/or there is continued physical intergroup segregation.

c) A refocusing on the 'intergroup' nature of prejudice

My experimental research adopts an intergroup design. For example, my research examines changes in both Asian and White Australians’ outgroup attitudes (McGrane & White, 2007; White, Harvey & Verrelli, 2015; Chu, White & Verrelli, 2017); Muslim and Christian outgroup attitudes (White & Abu-Rayya, 2012; 2014); Protestants and Catholics outgroup attitudes (White, Turner, Verrelli, Harvey, & Hanna, in press); homosexuals and heterosexuals outgroup attitudes (White, Verrelli, Maunder, & Kervinen, in press); and mentally healthy and people with schizophrenia (Maunder, White, & Verrelli, in press). I have argued that both voices, ingroup and outgroup voices, need to be heard and understood before effective prejudice reduction strategies can achieve success for both groups (White, Harvey & Verrelli, 2015).

2013: Office of Learning and Teaching Citations Award for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning – For developing and evaluating the innovative Constructive Feedback and Plagiarism Reduction Program that engages students’ writing skills and successfully reduced plagiarism rates (Fiona White and Caleb Owens).

In the media

Gender Equity in Leadership

I was one of only four academic staff at the University of Sydney to be awarded a place on the 2016 Chief Executive Women Leaders Program.

The program commenced on 10 March and will provide opportunities for the cohort to hear from a range of leaders from both the corporate and public sectors throughout the year.

“This program offers a unique opportunity to network with women leaders from a wide range of organisations to share ideas about promoting effective leadership, including authenticity, transparency and trust, in our respective workplaces,” Professor Fiona White said. “Despite our diverse backgrounds, many of the women recognised our common leadership goals and aspirations.”

The program aims to inspire women to take on more senior leadership roles, and enhance their career and personal growth opportunities
