From Gender Biases to Gender-Inclusive Design

Mihaela Vorvoreanu, Lingyi Zhang, Yun-Han Huang, Claudia Hilderbrand, Zoe Steine-Hanson, Margaret Burnett
2019 Proceedings of the 2019 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems - CHI '19  
In our 3-step investigation, two HCI researchers analyzed an industrial software product using GenderMag; we derived design changes to the product using the biases they found; and ran an empirical study  ...  To help fill this gap, we investigated whether the GenderMag bias detection method can lead directly to designs with fewer gender biases.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This work was supported in part by NSF 1528061. We thank the Microsoft Academic team and visual designer Jin Kim. Without their hard work, the redesign would not have been possible.  ...
