Abstract

The rising globalization of education and employment increases interactions between native and non-native speakers. We present a model of stereotype threat for speakers with a non-native accent interacting with native accent speakers. Stigma has been documented for non-native accents. However, non-native accents have been virtually ignored by organizational research, even though the number of people who work in a second language continues to grow. Overall, the model has important implications for managers and educators who work with non-native speakers in applied settings.
