Presented by Dr. Shakoor Ward, Professional Development Coordinator, Penn State University
Empirical studies show that stereotypes affect cognitive and motivational functions in the context of power relations. Dominant social statuses and dominant social group memberships are often in high-power status positions (e.g. supervisors and managers, administrators, professors) and have influence over individuals in low-power or lesser-power status positions. This session is intended to explore these power relationships within Higher Education, particularly in STEM disciplines. One focus is to examine the impact of gender stereotyping on performance and career satisfaction.
