About

Seeing that you have made it this far, it is fair to assume that you consider inclusive teaching to be important. That being the case, you probably aren’t deliberately, or consciously biased in your teaching. Hopefully this site will be a useful resource in helping teachers from around the world reflect on their practices, address their unconscious biases, and share their experiences whilst collaborating to make the world of the physical sciences more gender equitable.

This website is a product of the 2017 Gender Inclusive Teaching Working Group. This is a working group initiated by CERN’s Diversity Office in the framework of the CERN High School Teacher Programme, taking place at CERN for the third consecutive year.

The 2017 working group involved six teachers from around the world working with CERN’s Diversity Office to build upon the work of previous working groups and to produce resources which could be used by teachers around the world to promote gender inclusive teaching and work towards gender equity in the physical sciences. Some information about the 2016 Working Group can be found here.
