Women in STEM: Insights from Social Psychology

Women, and particularly women of color, are underrepresented in STEM fields. Although numerous factors contribute to this underrepresentation, recent research has shown that stereotypes about both the kinds of people who succeed at STEM and about the work itself inhibit the engagement, persistence, and performance of women and women of color. Over the last decade, abundant research in social psychology has documented the causes and consequences of STEM-relevant stereotypes. Recent investigations have identified strategies that produce resilience in the face of stereotypes and negative cues that signal low representation. This interdisciplinary panel will discuss evidence-based interventions for reducing gender barriers.
This event is free and open to the public.
