Empowering Our Team: Reducing or Removing Stereotype Threat in a Diverse Work Environment 

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 teammates become more successful, as well. During this session, 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. Learn how through discussion and breakout sessions.

Led by Kimberly Morgan, Ed. D.
