Gender Bias Learning Project
Gender bias in academia is alive and well. Identifying and understanding the distinct patterns of gender bias is the first step towards ensuring that bias does not derail your career. The Center for WorkLife Law, with support from a NSF ADVANCE leadership grant, has developed this on-line gender bias training that teaches you to identify the four basic patterns of gender bias:
- Prove it Again!
- The Double Bind
- The Maternal Wall
- Gender Wars
Although gender bias is a serious topic with professionally damaging consequences, WorkLife Law’s gender bias training website offers a zany, brainy approach that allows you to learn what you need to know, share your experiences, and have fun in the process.
This training also provides survival strategies for handling each type of bias, as well as:
- A series of animated video scenarios illustrating each pattern
- Video clips from interviews with gender bias experts
- A pop quiz to help you test your knowledge
- An on-line game: Gender Bias Bingo
