Lead With Inclusion: Personal and Strategic Actions to Reduce Gender Inequity at Work

Lead With Inclusion: Personal and Strategic Actions to Reduce Gender Inequity at Work

An inclusive workplace doesn’t just get created by chance. It takes intention, purposeful action and understanding of how to disrupt biases that often impact the career trajectory of women in the workplace. In this research-backed presentation, you will learn about common biases that impede women from advancing at work. You will also learn how leading with inclusion ensures that employees from underrepresented backgrounds thrive. Learn personal and institutional actions you can take to reduce gender bias in the workplace and design a workplace culture where everyone belongs.
