Welche Karriere passt zu mir? Wie Selbststereotypisierung Karriereentscheidungen beeinflussen kann


Auch entscheiden sich Frauen eher für traditionell maskuline Bereiche (z. B. Unternehmenstum), wenn Ausschreibungen auf stereotyp maskuline Sprache („Unternehmer“) und Bilder verzichten und stattdessen geschlechtergerechte Sprache („Unternehmer und Unternehmerin“) verwendet wird (Hentschel, Horvath, Sczesny & Peus, 2018).

Workshops zu fairer Rekrutierung und Personalauswahl oder auch Gender-Sensibilisierungsworkshops können den Einfluss von Selbststereotypen in Organisationen verringern.
