create a presentation addressing how gender identity is formed, the scientific evidence for the differences between the genders, and the various influences (biological, social, and cultural) that affect these differences.

In this assignment, you will create a presentation addressing how gender identity is formed, the scientific evidence for the differences between the genders, and the various influences (biological, social, and cultural) that affect these differences.

Assume you are making a presentation as part of a national symposium on gender development. Your contribution will serve as the introductory presentation to provide context to the symposium and your copresenters. The target audience for this project is the research community.

Using the module readings, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, research how gender identity is formed.

Develop a presentation that addresses the following:

  • Introduction: Overview of presentation
  • The history of the study of gender
  • Ways in which gender is studied
  • Psychological theories about gender development
  • Relative roles of biological, social, and cultural influences on gender (such as stereotyping and discrimination)
  • Scientific evidence for gender differences in the following areas:
    • School and work
    • Relationships and sexuality
    • Health and wellness
    • Stress, coping, and psychopathology
  • Conclusions that forecast the landscape for gender development at work and home, and in political arenas and initiatives in the coming years
