Gender bias in the workplace should come as no surprise to KeyLIME-ers.  Yet, many do not realize how pervasive sexism can be in the assessment of trainees in our residency programs. Jon's selection showcases the significant issue of gender bias in the academic environment and the hosts attempt to understand the scope of the problem.

Thanks for the shout out on the podcast. Excellent discussion on real time effects of unconscious bias, especially in metrics that are validated but apparently not free from bias. Happy to discuss on a future KeyLime Podcast!
