9:05 am - 10:05 am Workshop: 50 Ways to Fight Bias

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
