Bring a Boy to SWE - Gender Bias Workshop

February 2015

Eva Pietri led a discussion on gender bias in STEM that was attended by students from across the STEM disciplines at Yale.  She presented research on implicit bias and showed some short movie clips that she has helped to create.  These videos, which dramatize situations where gender bias comes to the fore, are designed to help combat implicit bias by helping viewers to become aware of it.  After her presentation, she led a lively discussion about gender bias.
