Abstract

More women than men leave the academic sciences at all career stages. One of many factors contributing to this phenomenon is the impact of unconcious bias in the hiring and tenure processes. Unconcious bias, also known as implicit bias, is a subtle and pervasive form of bias against a group. It is particularly incidious because even the most well-intentioned men and women carry these biases without being aware of them.
