Claude Steele - Whistling Vivaldi: How stereotypes affect us and what we can do—in schools and the workplace"
Claude Steele will discuss his seminal work on stereotype threat and his book Whistling Vivaldi: How Stereotypes Affect Us and What We Can Do. Steele received a BA from Hiram College and a PhD from Ohio State University. He served as the twenty-first provost of Columbia University and has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Education, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society. His book Whistling Vivaldi provides an essential roadmap for understanding the link between identity and performance, and how those of us involved in education can make significant strides in mitigating the effects of negative stereotypes in our communities. Steele was hosted by the Office for Institutional Diversity as the inaugural Community Reading Project guest; his lecture was cosponsored by the multicultural resource center and by Reed's Student Senate.
