Prototypicality of Race and Gender

Prototypicality of Race and Gender: The Role of Attractiveness on Ratings of Competence in the Workplace

Project Details


The goal of this research is to investigate how attractiveness and perceived gender prototypicality differentially affect ratings of competence and hiring decisions in the workplace for Black and White women compared to their Black male and White male counterparts. To do this, I will be running two studies online through Amazon’s Mechanical Turk.
