Sex(ism) and the City: Gender bias in urban design

Shagun Sethi and Juliana Velez Duque

Leading Cities is excited to showcase research fellows’ work on gender bias in urban design and the perception of safety in urban spaces.

Tuesday, March 30, 2021 | 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM ET

This webinar presents the research of Shagun Sethi and Juliana Velez Duque, uncovering unintended gender bias in urban planning.

“In this webinar, we will explore the gendered perceptions people have of safety while walking in urban spaces, specifically cities. We will be looking into the elements of public spaces, the saddening but not shocking difference in perceptions of safety between men and women, and how people can contribute to making cities safer for all of us and discuss recommendations for city planners, policymakers, and global thinkers!”
