Self-Affirmation as a Tool to Enhance Teaching and Mentoring

P-MAX logo

Stereotype threat has been demonstrated to negatively impact the academic performance, motivation and sense of belonging of members of certain minority groups (African American, Latinx, Women, etc.). A number of studies have examined the power of self-affirmation to combat this negative effect. In this workshop, we will discuss this low-cost, but high-impact intervention to address the issue of stereotype threat in both teaching and mentoring.
