Noted author Claude Steele (NAS) spoke about stereotype threat at the Committee on Women in Science, Engineering, and Medicine Spring meeting on June 2, 2015 at 1:30 PM PDT. Claude Steele is the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost at the University of California, Berkeley. He is the author of 
Whistling Vivaldi: How Stereotypes Affect Us and What We Can Do and recipient of numerous awards for his contributions to social psychology. Stereotype threat is a situational predicament in which individuals are, or feel themselves to be at risk of confirming negative stereotypes about their social group. Stereotypes attached to an aspect of one’s identity can have a drastic negative effect on a person’s functioning. In Whistling Vivaldi and his academic work, Steele examines how these effects explain racial and gender gaps in academic performance. Read a short biography about Claude Steele or view resources on Implicit Bias.
