Lisa Stratton & Jill Gaulding, Lawyers, Gender Justice Founders

Jammin’ & Jambalaya for Gender Justice

Special guest, Richard Carlbom and music by the Roe Family Singers

Gender Justice addresses the causes and consequences of gender inequality, both locally and nationally through three interconnected program areas: impact litigation, policy work, and public education and training. Each program area highlights the central role of cognitive bias - the subtle but pervasive ways that stereotypes affect our perceptions, decision, and preferences - as a cause of inequality.
