Short- and long-term consequences of teachers' gender biases

Event Type: WEN Event

Date: Friday Aug 31, 2018, 12:00 pm

Presentation by Dr. Rigissa Megalokonomou, University of Queensland

 

Abstract: Recent research focuses on factors determining gender differences in academic achievements and in university field of study. In this study we focus on how teachers’ gender role attitudes and stereotypes influence the gender gap by affecting the environment at school. We explore the extent to which teachers’ gender bias in high school influences students’ academic performance in high-stake exams that determine admission to universities and on students’ choice of university field of study.  We introduce a new way of measuring teacher gender bias and we link teachers over time to get a persistent measure of their bias based on many classes.

The Gender Gap in Superannuation

Date: Monday Jun 11, 2018, 12:00 pm

This presentation will explore the reasons behind this gender gap and what superannuation funds and the government may need to do in order that another generation of women do not face the prospect of living their final years in poverty.

This presentation will be followed by a panel session comprised of major superannuation fund representatives and academic experts who will answer questions relating to how this gender gap might be addressed by policy makers and funds themselves.
