Event overview

Behavioural insights provides empirical evidence to anticipate how people will react to policy options, rather than just making the assumption of rational behaviour. This is particularly useful in the gender equality sphere, where automatic associations based on stereotypes and prejudices often undermine our declared beliefs in gender equality.

Dr Klugman will share emerging insights and updates from the program of work which is exploring unconscious bias, gender stereotypes, gender role models and social norms in Victoria.
