"Effects of Threatening Environments on Women in STEM" Psychology Colloquium

Dr. Bettina Casad (Assistant Professor of Psychology, UMSL) will present studies from her research program that examine antecedents, mediators, and consequences of prejudice and discrimination for women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). She will present studies (1) reporting a theoretical model of threatening educational environments; (2) examining stereotype threat and cardiovascular challenge and threat responses; (3) effects of sexism in teams and the role of affect and motivation; and (4) moderators and consequences of self-regulation failure after experiencing sexism. All studies highlight the need to use multiple methods and integrate theories from social psychology and neuroscience to develop a deeper understanding of the causes and consequences of women’s underrepresentation in STEM.
