In addition to education and training, changing clinical environments can also be key to purposeful change in behavior. This review is intended to focus on the effectiveness of interventions and the provider and system level, but not at the level of policy which, while important, is beyond the scope of this review. In conclusion, research on stereotype threat is highly relevant to I/O psychology and ripe for future discoveries.

Following the advent of the MMS, misunderstanding of limited, extant, A/PI health data (e.g., the Heckler Report ) has contributed to the notion that most or all Asian Americans are better positioned in health than are other racial/ethnic groups. Such perceptions can contribute to a low preference for Asian Americans benefiting from redistributive funding/policies (Chao et al., 2010). Additionally, funding/policy decisions can be made under suboptimal and time-pressured conditions, perhaps allowing greater room for using heuristics and implicit stereotypes that “model minority” Asians may not need increased funding or inclusive policies. Although direct evidence of the MMS in funding and policy decision making is absent at present, the disproportionately low allocation of funds to improve Asian American health suggests the effects of the MMS. A naturalistic study conducted with science faculty members at a large university found evidence for belonging uncertainty (Holleran et al., 2011). Interactions among male and female faculty members were monitored for content and participants were asked to rate the competencies of those with whom they interacted.

Interventions developed based on anecdotal evidence or intuition may backfire and create more threat (e.g., Dweck, 1999; Schneider et al., 1996). Research is still underway to address how timing affects intervention effectiveness (Cohen et al., 2012). Interventions that focus on early stages (e.g., onboarding) serve a prevention function to intervene before the onset of stereotype threat, for example when employees are still developing their initial perceptions of the workplace. Interventions may be implemented after a problem has already been identified and can disrupt the downward spiral, for example after a merger or during a mid-quarter progress meeting (Cohen et al., 2012).

Companies that discriminate based on age may lose out on the valuable knowledge and experience that older workers bring. There may also be serious legal consequences if a team member decides to file a job discrimination lawsuit.

Beyond stereotypes

Cultural stereotypes in the workplace can create misunderstandings, biased treatment and barriers to career advancement, according to Catalyst. Most teacher background characteristics were unrelated to their ratings, including teachers’ years of experience or educational background. These patterns are intriguing because they suggest that members of a negatively stereotyped group (e.g., people of color and women in mathematics) may have themselves internalized these negative stereotypes and may contribute to their reproduction. More simply, this work illustrates that no one can be assumed to be free of bias, including members of negatively stereotyped groups (Bearman, Korobov, & Thorne, 2009; Williams & Williams-Morris, 2000). Finally, because we aimed to capture teachers’ unconscious biases, teachers were not told the real purpose of the study. We told them that we were in the final stage of selecting items for an assessment that would capture the features of middle school students’ knowledge and skills and accurately predict their mathematical growth. Teachers were asked to evaluate students’ solutions and were told that their anonymous feedback would help finalize the best items for the assessment.

Empathy is defined as the ability to understand and share the feelings of someone else. Empathy takes practice, and it’s important to continually grow your listening skills when in a leadership role. Making an attempt to understand what your coworker is experiencing helps your relationship with them thrive. A good leader will always find time to check in with their team members. This is an effective way to build trust with employees and promote mutual respect. If employees aren’t familiar with the language you have chosen to use to communicate, give the ample time to prep for meetings.

We will summarize the results into evidence tables and synthesize evidence for each unique population, comparison, and outcome combination. When a comparison is adequately addressed by a previous systematic review of acceptable quality and no new studies are available, we will reiterate the conclusions drawn from that review.
