How to avoid discrimination in economic citizenship education
Unconscious prejudices, often due to cultural stereotypes settled over time, can sometimes and involuntarily lead parents to adopt different attitudes between sons and daughters. For example, it may happen that girls are not encouraged to follow a school path in the field of STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) or not educated from an early age on the importance of achieving economic independence.
During the webinar, we will discuss how to identify involuntary discriminatory attitudes and some suggestions will be proposed to avoid falling into the trap of gender prejudice with children.
In preparation for the event, it will be possible to verify one’s orientation towards gender prejudices through the test carried out by Harvard University at the following link: https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/
