Description

Gender identity affects success in medical sciences, education, and other fields. Using the most recent research into the biology and psychology of sexual identity, this project will investigate the effects of gender identity on success in veterinary and sports medicine, education, nursing and academic language studies. For example, our team notices that higher standards are imposed on female physicians seeking to specialize in sports medicine in order to receive the same opportunities as their male counterparts. In education, educators are designed to be leaders in the classroom; however, oftentimes the perception of female and male educators by students and parents can influence the success of an educator's authority as a leader in the workplace. Based on both primary and secondary research, we will define what constitutes success in several disciplines and then identify ways in which polarizing discourse affects that success. Through our research, we hope to invite people to discuss civilly an issue that polarizes.
