Symposia: 221/51 - Reasons for hope? Women’s reactions to gender stereotypes

Wednesday 5 July
14.30 - 16.10 h.
Seminar
We examine subtle cues that trigger implicit and explicit processes reinforcing gender stereotypes, but also counteracting them. Across five presentations, we investigate cultural and identity-based boundary conditions as well as potential interventions against the negative consequences of gender stereotypes.
