Stereotype threat is a prevalent issue in educational and work environments, where it may influence historically underrepresented minorities to underperform and hinder their ability to succeed to their true potential. This research project will address issues of stereotype threat by carrying out interventions. These are theoretical strategies to alleviate stereotype threat. Interventions will focus on changing the narrative, positive self-awareness of one’s gender and/or racial identity, and growth mindset.
