I go about my day with anywhere from 3 to 10+ browser tabs open on my computer, but for the most part, when I shut my computer done, the links are out of sight, out of mind. But with my phone, which is rarely turned off, I open and interesting tab and leave it like that for days. Sometimes weeks. Sometimes the links lead to a blog post of their own or Facebook items. Other times, they just sit there.
So today, I’m sharing a few of these links of interesting reads. Look for a few more on Friday.

STEM and Implicit Bias
An interesting read about how STEM discrimination begins in elementary school. Of note if a 2012 study indicating that girls scored higher on math tests when the teacher did not know the student behind the test, but they received lower scores when the teacher was aware of grading a girl’s paper. On a related note, if you’ve got time, watch the video below from an “unconscious bias” training at Google Ventures. If you don’t have time, watch long enough to go through the first exercise. It’s simple, but drives the point home. You might just find time to watch more of it.
