Population-Based Simulation of Gender Inequality Issues

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Colleges, School and Institutes


A population-based simulation framework is presented that allows a principled approach for exploring gender inequalities in professional hierarchies such as universities or businesses, and how they might emerge, evolve and be rectified. Results from a representative range of cases involving gender-based discrimination and intrinsic gender-based ability differences are presented to demonstrate the power of the approach. Such artificial life simulations will hopefully inspire and facilitate better approaches for dealing with these issues in real life.
