Title: Empowering Our Team: Reducing or Removing Stereotype Threat in a Diverse Work Environment
Lead Presenter: Kimberly Morgan
Date: October 07, 2021    Time: 8:00 am - 9:00 am
Room: Exhibit Hall A
Abstract: When stereotypes regarding the characteristics and social groups of individuals are made salient, it can negatively affect individual performance; and when that happens the team suffers. By empowering individuals in our team regarding what they may feel are negative stereotypes - consciously or unconsciously -, we can empower them to overcome negativity and bring greater productivity to the team. In turn, our students become more successful, too. During this poster presentation, participants will learn about stereotypes and stereotype threat, which is the fear of confirming in oneself a negative stereotype due to performance on difficult or self-evaluative tasks. Implementing anti-stereotype threat initiatives within the team and individually can reduce or even eliminate the negative effects.
