The awareness of stereotypes about your group can suppress your intelligence, your motivation, your curiosity, and your ultimate achievement. In this workshop, Joshua Aronson will explain stereotype threat, the science behind it, and what you can do to combat it in yourself, your students, and your employees.
Learn more about collective intelligence and groundbreaking findings from two recent studies on collective intelligence. These studies found that while collective intelligence was not associated with individual intelligence of group members, it was associated with three other factors: 1) the proportion of women in the group; 2) the distribution of turn-taking; and 3) the average social sensitivity of group members. We’ll discuss these findings and what they mean for your organization.
This talk features one of the pre-eminent experts on stereotype threat, Joshua Aronson, talking about how stereotype threat affects underrepresented groups in particular environments and what we can do to alleviate the phenomenon. Following the talk, a panel of Alliance representatives will help summarize the takeaways for each group.
