Today on the Dads with Daughters Podcast we spoke with Michelle Travis, a Professor of Law at the University of San Francisco School of Law, where she serves as the Co-Director of USF’s Labor and Employment Law Program. Michelle is an expert on employment discrimination law, and her research focuses on sex discrimination, gender stereotypes, work/family balance, and disability discrimination in the workplace. She teaches courses on employment law and civil litigation, and she has won multiple teaching awards. She has a J.D. from Stanford Law School and a B.A. in psychology from Cornell University.
Michelle is also the author of “Dads For Daughters: How Fathers Can Give their Daughters a Better, Brighter, Fairer Future.” This book shares stories of men who have been inspired by their daughters to advance gender equity in their homes, workplaces, and communities. It also offers encouragement, advice, and resources for other dads who want to become stronger male allies for women and girls.
Michelle shared that all dads should take the Dads4Daughters test, an implicit bias test that may offer some interesting results.
Michelle has also published an award-winning children’s picture book, “My Mom Has Two Jobs,” which celebrates working moms.
