Abstract (Summary)

This study explores occupational gender stereotypes among ethnically diverse college students who were assigned the task of selecting a candidate for an employment position. Participants adequately represented four ethnic groups (African American, Asian American, Hispanic American, and European American) from two campuses in Los Angeles, California. Participants received a career ad for a feminine-titled or masculine-titled management position, two comparable resumes from male and female candidates, and a questionnaire. It was hypothesized that male participants would prefer the male candidate for the masculine management position and the female candidate for the feminine management position. Female participants were hypothesized to prefer the female candidate for both management positions. Ethnicity was expected to play a role in candidate selection and rating. Chi-square and repeated measures ANOVA were used for data analysis. Research results show that female participants were more egalitarian in candidate selection and ethnicity did play a strong role.
