This Funzing Experience:
The biological differences between men and women have inspired books, movies, and many a comedian—but what hormones affect these differences? And, how do these hormones affect our behaviour? Join Molecular Genetics experts Dr Liora Vilmovsky & Dr Adi Naamti for a fascinating talk on the science behind gender differences.

None of us are strangers to the fact that there is a gender-based gap in leadership, representation and wage. Many forces contribute to this gap including biological, social, and cultural elements.

These scientific differences, which will be discussed, have in recent years been questioned as to how they relate to the strengths men and women possess.

There is a wider understanding, that we as society contribute to the inequality gap by applying unconscious bias toward each gender, consisting of a set of beliefs and stereotypes that we are not even aware of.

So where does biology impact end and the impact of our surroundings and cultural influence start?

It's a complicated question with a complicated answer...

Venue: The Joker

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
