Title: Targeting the subtleties: Strategies for remediating interpersonal discrimination

Abstract: Recent research suggests that displays of discrimination have changed from expressions that were once very overt in nature to expressions that are more subtle and involve interpersonal behaviors (Hebl, Foster, Mannix, Dovidio, 2002). Unlike formal discrimination, there is little to no legislation that protects stigmatized individuals from interpersonal discrimination; hence, research on strategies for remediating interpersonal discrimination is becoming increasingly important. The current research examines three strategies (compensation, acknowledgment, and individuating information) that attempt to reduce the interpersonal discrimination that gay men and lesbians receive in a job applicant setting. Results show that employing a remediation strategy involving compensation or acknowledgment reduces the interpersonal discrimination that stigmatized individuals receive when applying for jobs.
