Laar, van, Colette

Colette van Laar is the newly appointed research Professor of Gender Studies at the Center for Social & Cultural Psychology at the University of Leuven. Her research examines social psychological factors and processes that transfer negative group stereotypes and prejudice into lower outcomes in education and work. Her work examines well-being, motivation and performance in women in a number of fields, including girls with regard to math, young Muslim women in education and the labor market, and women pursuing upward mobility and leadership positions in the police force, telecom, banking or other organizations in which they have been traditionally underrepresented. For her work she has received a number of grants, including an Odysseus Grant from the Flemish Science Foudnation and VIDI grant from the Dutch National Science Foundation.
