Abstract: The purpose of this research is to monitor the changes of implicit gender biases of cadets in the Reserve Officer Training Corps of Cadets using the Implicit Association Task (IAT). Through observational learning and desensitization of exposure to women in the leadership role, gender bias should decrease over time. At the University of Hawaii at Manoa Army ROTC program, 21 cadets in trial one were given a Gender-Power IAT at the beginning of the fall semester. At the end of the semester, 15 of the 21 cadets were administered the IAT again for trial two. Results did not show any significant differences between trials one and two to indicate a presence of implicit gender biases or a change in implicit biases over time. Data implies an inability to effectively manipulate variables of gender versus trial with the current Gender-Power IAT.
