The truth is, gender bias is so ingrained in society, it’s almost automatic. Even the most progressive among us can be guilty of it. These biases function as an invisible barrier for women in the workplace. To achieve gender equality, we all have to learn how to identify our unconscious bias and start actively working against it.
Studies show when women exhibit the same working styles as their male counterparts, they are labeled very differently, due to unconscious gender bias. Help us make the world see these biases for what they are—invisible barriers standing in the way of gender equality in the workplace.
Upload a photo of yourself, and choose a word that has been used to describe you in the workplace, due to unconscious bias. Share it on your social channels to help us draw attention to this important issue.
