Science of Equality Volume 2 CoverThe report focuses on how gender bias plays out across various domains, including in the media, workplaces, communities, schools, and our homes. Building upon the Perception Institute’s inaugural Science of Equality Volume 1: Addressing Implicit Bias, Racial Anxiety, and Stereotype Threat in Education and Healthcare, this new  report addresses gender as it intersects with race and ethnicity, exploring the different stereotypes associated with black women, Latina women, Asian-American women, and white women. The report examines how women navigate these stereotypes and highlights interventions to reduce the harm of implicit bias and stereotyping.

Godsil, Director of Research for Perception Institute, and leading social psychologists Linda R. Tropp, Professor of Psychology and Brain Sciences at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and Phillip Atiba Goff, President of the Center for Police Equity. Download the report.
