Most people have some implicit bias about gender and gender roles. Even people who strongly value gender equity and would prefer to see more women in leadership positions may find that their implicit biases work against their intentions. While gender bias may be more underground, unfortunately it still lives among us. The good news is that naming bias and knowing how it bias works serves as the critical first step in mitigating and counteracting implicit gender bias. This session will share information to provide context for gender bias in the conservation community. The workshop will create space for participants to talk in small groups about how gender bias impacts them and their work. The workshop design will allow participants, those identifying as women, men and gender nonbinary, to walk away with steps for professional development, strategies to counter bias and ways to pro-actively work against gender bias in our conservation context.
