She received one of her two Emmys for team coverage of the California wildfires. She won one of her two Gracies for a 20/20 story on gender equality in the sciences.

Confidence Gap

Minorities, not just women, suffer from the “confidence gap.” Juju Chang outlines the sociological data which repeatedly shows that “sterotype threats” can cause women and minorities to underperform: from stereotypes about dumb jocks to the myth of Asian-Americans as model minorities and more. There is a persistent, subtle stero-typing which continues to impact women and minorities in the workplace and beyond. Chang teaches audiences how to combat this phenomenon and erase these stereotypes once and for all.
