Unconcious Bias Workshop

-

CPD for teachers

  • In this workshop you will learn about the role unconscious bias around gender can play in 

  • creating stereotypes and the impacts that can have on the choices girls and young women make when it comes to participating in subjects in school and later on in the choices they make in their careers.

  • This workshop will explore how such bias can be addressed and you will be guided through a case study of one school involved in the project where you will hear about that school’s experience, the initiatives they made, and the impact it had on the school community.
