WorkLife Law is Studying How Gender Bias Differs by Race
With support from the National Science Foundation, WorkLife Law is studying how gender bias differs by race. It seeks to interview women of color in STEM (science, technology, math, and engineering) who work in academia.
The interview begins by describing the four patterns of gender bias documented in 35 years of social science studies, and then asks three basic questions:
- Do any of these patterns of gender bias sound familiar?
- How do you feel the experience of gender bias differs for women of color, as compared with white women?
- What strategies have you used, or seen others use, to ensure that gender bias does not derail their careers?
The presentation below summarizes the hypotheses that inform the study.
