FABBS Foundation Honors Claude Steele
August 17, 2011
Claude M. Steele, PhD (Stanford University) is now featured in the FABBS Foundation's program which honors eminent, senior scientists.
Steele is among the most influential social scientists of the past three decades, whose social psychology experiments are well known within the disciplines of Psychology, Sociology, Education, and the Law. Steele's work has inspired hundreds of scientific studies and generations of young scholars.
Steele is best known for his research on "stereotype threat," which identified a situational factor operating in the much-debated ability gaps between women and men in the domain of mathematics, and the broader IQ gap between blacks and whites.
