Welcome to the ASPIRe Lab at IUPUI

Ashburn-Nardo's Stereotyping, Prejudice, and Intergroup Relations Lab


Dr. Ashburn-Nardo and her lab focus on documenting the various ways that women, African Americans, and other underrepresented groups are stigmatized. We are especially interested in biases that are unexpected or counterintuitive, such as microaggressions that happen in professional contexts where formal discrimination is prohibited (e.g., the workplace, academia, healthcare) and intra-group prejudices in which people are biased against members of their own in-groups. Much of our research concerns individual strategies that stigmatized targets and their allies can use to reduce prejudice and foster inclusivity.​
