Description: Classrooms characterized by gender equity are ones in which all students, regardless of their gender, have an equal opportunity to learn and master course content. However, gender equity occurs when some students experience isolation and are exposed to gendered language and teaching styles that favor one gender over the other. Classrooms with these characteristics hinder learning, lower students' self-esteem, and adversely affect their retention.


 As a result of successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the gender equity issues that occur in the classroom
  • Explain and discuss the need to change attitudes related to gender equity
  • Take the action steps necessary to achieve gender equity in the classroom
