When most people picture a leader, they see a tall, middle aged white man in a suit. Although this image is changing, many organizations still have rules and procedures that unintentionally favor people who fit that image, and disadvantage people who don’t. This highly interactive session uses role play, research, and group discussions to explore work practices and norms that look gender neutral, but can have a differential impact on women.
You will learn:
- How to identify and navigate the invisible and unintentional barriers that hinder the progress of women and other underrepresented groups
- What the latest research says about how gender plays out in organizations
- How race, ethnicity, and other social identities create additional challenges and opportunities
