For Educators: Gender Bias Case Study
Despite the progress girls and women have made in school and the workplace in the past few decades, a gender gap still persists, and our research suggests that biases could be at the root of this gap.
Gender bias and discrimination is surprisingly common in many schools and sometimes happens beneath school staff’s radar. As adults, we can shed light on these important topics that often go undiscussed at school.
While these discussions can be challenging, our Gender Bias Case Study can help facilitate important conversations with your students.
For Families: 5 Tips for Preventing and Reducing Gender Bias
We all carry biases that are based on gender; throughout our lives we receive daily messages about what is expected of males and females.
These biases become ingrained and it’s often impossible to completely get rid of them. But, if we can be more aware of our biases, we have a better chance of counteracting them.
Use these tips and suggestions for understanding and addressing bias with your kids.
