Unconscious biases are social stereotypes held by both women and men. Research shows biases negatively impact STEM workplaces in a number of areas, including: climate, evaluation, hiring, salary, workload, resource allocation, daily interactions, recognition, promotion, publication, funding, & access to key professional networks. Fortunately, research also shows steps we can take to mitigate the effects of bias and create more equitable STEM workplaces.
