Men and women are still treated differently based on gender stereotypes, and higher education is not immune to gender bias. Whether one is seeking a career as a faculty member or some other type of position within academia, knowing the potential challenges one can experience is important. This presentation explores some of the possible situations women and men may encounter as well as provide information on current research findings related to the gender divide in college and university settings. Case studies will be shared so as to explore solutions and develop approaches to addressing gender discrimination. Feel free to bring your own lunch and drink. For any questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. This event earns 2 RCR credits and is co-sponsored with the 2015-16 Academic Job Search Series.
