Description

This presentation describes the student-professor relationship and how it relates to gender disparity in STEM, as well as provides guidance for how to reduce this inequality within classroom and lab spaces. Using scholarly research in sociology, psychology, and biology to first understand the underlying causes of the issue, I will develop a research-based guide to enhance gender inclusivity in both STEM classroom and lab spaces at colleges and universities. This guide will incorporate research, feedback from faculty and staff, and guidance from best practices used in other academic departments.
