"Stereotype threat is defined as a situational predicament in which individuals are at risk of confirming negative stereotypes about their group. It is the resulting sense that one might be judged in terms of negative stereotypes about one’s group instead of on personal merit" (Inzlicht & Schmader, 2011). This threat can cause certain individuals to perform poorly in their academics and almost always affects systemically non-dominant groups disproportionately. This training will address and examine social identity as well as stereotypes and stereotype threat. Participants will gain strategies and tools to combat stereotype threat in the classroom. The Zoom link will be emailed to registrants before the session.

In this session, participants will gain an understanding of the intersections of race and gender, and the influence of whiteness on feminism and social equity. Through a historical look at the role that White women have played in social justice movements and the at times negative impact of those roles, we will discuss strategies that can be used to advocate for systemically non-dominant identities and interrupt harmful patterns of white supremacy culture.

NOTE: While this session is a "deep dive" into a specific identity, this session will be open to all to attend, regardless of gender or racial identity. The Zoom link will be emailed to registrants before the session.
