In two studies, after learning about implicit gender bias in STEM, women reported significantly higher levels of social identity threat, which predicted greater intergroup anxiety (S1) and avoidance of cross-sex collaboration on a STEM task (S1 & S2). Together, these results suggest that learning about implicit gender bias could lead women to avoid collaboration with men in STEM settings.
