Women, and particularly women of color, are underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields. Although numerous factors contribute to this underrepresentation, recent research has shown that stereotypes about both kinds of people who succeed at STEM and about the work itself inhibit the engagement, persistence, and performance of women and women of color. Over the last decade, abundant research in social psychology has documented the causes and consequences of STEM-relevant stereotypes. Recent investigations have identified strategies that produce resilience in the face of stereotypes and negative cues that signal low representation. This meeting will bring together social psychologists, education researchers, and STEM educators to discuss evidence-based interventions for reducing gender barriers in academic and professional institutions.
