Helping Women at BYU to Thrive by Understanding Gender Bias

Presented by Dr. Susan R. Madsen, Founder & Director of the Utah Women & Leadership Project

An engaging 2-hour workshop for those interested in understanding gender bias at a deeper level. Dr. Madsen will share some research on gender bias more broadly, and then talk more specifically about how unconscious bias and gender bias interact to create powerful social norms that are challenging—but not impossible—to change. Small group discussions will be intermixed with presentation segments to consider dynamics specific to BYU that add to these patterns of biases for both men and women. Dr. Madsen and participants will then offer strategies for individuals, departments, schools, and the institution to make positive changes on campus.
