Abstract:This thesis examined whether the Common Ingroup Identity Model (CIIM) is effective at reducing intergroup bias and tension among White females in imagined working relationships with Black females in the U.S. To date, quantitative research on this issue has not been studied from the perspective of both race and gender identity. This is the one of the first studies to investigate intergroup anxiety and its effects, from this intersectional perspective. It was predicted that a common ingroup identity would effectively reduce intergroup anxiety, bias and negative outgroup attitudes experienced by White females in imagined working relationships with Black Females. The current results were not found to be statistically significant. However, focusing on the pattern of mean differences, the opposite trends were found with White females in the superordinate condition reporting the highest levels of intergroup anxiety, bias, and negative outgroup attitudes. Theoretical and practical implication are discussed with respect to future research and interventions.
