THE STATE OF GENDER BIAS IN THE WORKPLACE

Whether deliberate or unconscious, gender 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. 

As the #MeToo movement has led us to a watershed moment. Cultural norms and workplace policies are evolving. And new questions and realities are starting to surface. A recent study by LeanIn.Org and SurveyMonkey showed that twice as many male managers now feel uncomfortable working alone with, socializing with, and mentoring women. This is a pivotal moment for gender partnership.
