Many areas of education suffer from a gender bias. This bias can be particularly acute in disciplines, such as finance, in which females are in the minority. As finance faculty interested in attracting the brightest, most talented students to our discipline, we need to be aware of how gender bias can affect female students' choices of major. This paper provides guidelines for professors to use in evaluating their behavior and guidelines for how schools and universities can promote education that is free of gender discrimination and bias.
