National Seminar

GENDER STEREOTYPING IN CAMPUS PLACEMENT: AN INDUSTRY-ACADEMIA PERSPECTIVE

Centre of Excellence in Public Policy and Government

Indian Institute of Management Kashipur

March 18, 2019

The issue of gender differences and gender stereotyping play an important role in the career counselling, choices, and placement processes in professional institutes. An urge to simplify the social reality tends to create gender stereotypes which results in two consequences: (a) a simplified version of complex reality, and (b) a resistance to change reinforced by a series of cognitive, behavioural, and language mechanisms. This tendency results in the misinterpretation of the social reality. The beliefs formed on the basis of the attitude of simplification accentuates the association between particular professional categories and gender. In other words, certain professions are considered appropriate for female professionals and certain others are regarded good for their male counterparts. It is generally assumed that that gender stereotypes diminish when academic excellence is given primary importance in our premier institutions like Indian Institutes of Management (IIM).

Against this backdrop, National Commission for Women has sponsored a National Seminar at IIM Kashipur to discuss various aspects of gender stereotypes from an academia-industry perspective on the career preferences of graduates of these institutions and suggest ways to decrease such gender stereotypes.

  1. Gender stereotypes and recruiters (Industry)
  2. Career preferences in campus placements
  3. Gender bias in occupations/professions.
  4. Industry and academia collaboration in reducing gender stereotyping in campus placement processes

Methodology Workshop

On the side of the seminar a methodology workshop will also be held on 17 Mar 2019 for Research Scholars and academics. The workshop will look into latest research methods in gender area that can help scholars in: (1) Identifying roots and mechanisms with which gender stereotypes are created and sustained, and (2) Identifying methods of elimination of gender stereotypes.
