Previous research has examined the impact of stereotypes on outcomes such as

the role of stereotypes in predicting self-rated leadership potential across gender and

detrimental stereotypes about one’s gender and age, for women and older workers, on

experimental evidence shows differential effects of stereotypes about women (vs. men)

suggest that both gender and age stereotypes affect older workers more than their

at the intersectional level show that endorsement of stereotypes has opposite effects on

impacted women’s and older worker’s perceptions of job fit (Studies 2 and 3), also

career implications for both women and older workers, with a particular focus on older

women, whose intersecting identities are leadership stereotype-incongruent.
