Unconscious Gender Bias and the Unwritten rules in Academia


IPGP - Îlot Cuvier


Séminaires Égalité, diversité et inclusion

Zoom seminar

Mira Vasic


Summary: The workshop will focus on the unwritten rules at the workplace and how to play the game of ‘building a successful career’ strategically and without losing your own identity. The workshop opens with a hands-on exercise in which you will experience how our unconscious (gender) bias prevents us from seeing women as leaders in academia. Participants will learn why women are usually disproportionately given administrative tasks, menial jobs, and undervalued assignments at their academic institutions, usually much more often than their male peers. They will also understand why if women push back against such office housework, they get backlash for not being cooperative. Participants will get practical tips on how to break the bias and get a fair start for the leadership start at their academic institution and career.
