The campaign aims to reduce or eliminate negative stereotypes that threaten how students evaluate themselves.

Solution

The ApareciĆ³ Foundation is a nonprofit charity dedicated to providing opportunities for young women to become leaders, think critically and increase their skills and confidence in order to make positive, high impact changes in their community. Utilizing a group mentoring model, the student mentoring initiative creates opportunities for our scholars to connect with professional women from a wide range of industries over the course of the six year program.
This public education campaign will engage, empower and educate young people concerning negative stereotypes that suppress student achievement, especially those affecting women.The campaign aims to reduce or eliminate negative stereotypes that threaten how students evaluate themselves.Our campaign will pay special attention to stereotype threats that affect women and that widen the gap in educational achievement, specifically stereotypes that alter academic identity and intellectual performance.
