Psychology Colloquium: "Addressing Gender Bias in STEM"

Women continue to be underrepresented in the physical sciences, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Multiple and complex factors contribute to the gender gap in STEM participation; one factor that has received considerable empirical support is the role of gender bias. This talk will review evidence of gender bias in STEM, as well as strategies to address gender bias. In particular, this talk will focus on two strategies – bias-coping strategies and bias-reduction strategies – and will discuss empirical evidence evaluating each strategy. Evidence suggests that good-intentioned strategies can sometimes have unintended consequences.
