Counteract stereotypes

Stereotypes can create an internal narrative that tells students and colleagues what they are and are not capable of. Stereotype threat describes the experience of students and colleagues who are afraid to confirm a negative stereotype about their identity and leads to them experiencing high stress and lowered performance (Steele & Aronson, 1995). While stereotypes are a societal issue, we can take steps in the classroom and on campus to counter negative stereotypes and mitigate the impact of stereotype threat.
