This webinar, for senior leaders and teachers will look at evidence to show that intended and unintended gender discrimination in schools can have a negative impact on learning potential and life-chances. 

Using real-life examples and case studies, we will explore how stereotyping can impact on the life chances of both girls and boys and look at strategies to combat this, such as, curriculum design and adapting the school culture. 

In this webinar, Janet Palmer, a teacher and former advisor to the Department for Education and Science will provide a review of the origins of personal, internalised and institutional gender stereotyping and explore the consequences of every day sexism.
