Break the Bias: Challenging Gender Stereotypes To Grow Generations of Equals
Is the pink, blue divide such a problem? Does it matter that the majority of children’s books still have a male protagonist? And why is it that girls are often drawn towards dolls and prams, while boys tend to like cars and trucks?
In celebration of this year’s International Women’s Day, not only pink and blue and Ducky Zebra are delighted to bring you a free online event, where we’ll discuss how we can challenge gender stereotypes to grow a generation of equals.
Are you a parent, carer, grandparent, aunt or uncle? Perhaps you work in an early years setting? Or maybe you’re interested in how we can challenge gender stereotypes to create a more equal world? If so, this webinar is for you.
The webinar will consist of two panels, chaired by Clare Willetts from not only pink and blue, and joined by expert speakers from Let Toys be Toys, Lifting Limits, Butterfly Books, Daddilife and Ducky Zebra.
Panel 1: 12.00 – 12.45pm – Break the Bias in retail
Is there an unconscious bias in the high-street? Can the books, toys and clothes we buy (or receive) really influence our children? In our first panel, we are joined by Let Toys be Toys, Butterfly Books and Ducky Zebra to explore further
Panel 2: 12.45 – 1.30pm – Break the Bias in parenting
Where are we in terms of our view of the roles for parents? Are children aware of stereotypes around them? And how are early years settings tackling gender bias? In our second panel we are joined by Daddilife and Lifting Limits to explore further
Can small changes in our habits really create more opportunities for our kids? Join us to find out more.
