There is a growing interest in male-dominated industries and the challenges women face finding acceptance within the professional community. One reason the glass ceiling persists is that women receive different developmental experiences during their careers. Yet there seems to be little research on how gender bias in training documents may isolate and limit access for women who pursue careers in male-dominated industries. We will take a look at the FAA's (Federal Aviation Administration) online library for flight instructors and students to address the use of gender-specific pronouns and examples of how to write more inclusive, technical documents.
