Gender bias is holding women back in the workplace. Whether deliberate or unconscious, bias makes it harder for women to get hired and promoted and negatively impacts their day-to-day work experiences. This hurts women and makes it difficult for companies to level the playing field.
This workshop is a hands-on activity that will highlight specific examples of gender bias in the workplace and offers research-backed recommendations for what to do.
Key evidence-based research findings include:
- Diverse teams are often more innovative and productive
- Companies with more women in leadership roles perform better, and employees on diverse and inclusive teams put in more effort, stay longer, and demonstrate more commitment
- Organizations with diverse leadership realize higher profit
