Welcoming Dialogue on Gender Bias- Innovation Quarter
Ever wondered where to start with social justice issues? Have you wanted to become involved, but worry about using the wrong language? Join a group of like-minded voyagers as you engage in the Starbucks To Be Welcoming learning series.
This To Be Welcoming course breaks down some taken-for-granted notions about gender and sex. We begin with key terms like sex and gender, followed by a video module featuring faculty experts answering commonly asked questions. Next, we provide context by exploring specific representations of gender in media, what we mean when we talk about sex and gender identity, and gender-based disparities in income in the United States. We conclude with points for starting your own discussions on gender bias and considering appropriate responses.
