50 Ways to fight Bias 2021
Date & Venue
About the event
Bias—whether deliberate or unconscious—is holding women back in the workplace. It 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 hard for companies to level the playing field.
Thus Lean In Switzerland Network invites you to workshop to learn and discuss concrete steps to address bias against women head-on! In one-and-half-hour online event, we organize active discussion among community members about your experience with different Biases in your everyday world. Come and be ready to participate, to listen, to share and to determine your take-away actions!
Some of you might have participated in physical event, organized by us in 2019, where we all together with you and guests from Lean In Headquaters were on the journey to find out, how to deal with biases in every day situations. We collected few pictures for your memories - please check this link LEAN IN I 50 WAYS TO FIGHT BIAS I ZÜRICH (leaninswitzerland.org)

About 50 Ways to Fight Bias
73% of women experience bias at work—yet less than a third of employees are able to recognize bias when they see it. 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.
50 Ways to Fight Bias highlights more than 50 specific examples of bias against women at work and offers
research-backed recommendations for what to do. The program directly addresses the experiences of women who face compounding biases because of their race, sexual orientation, disability, or other aspects of their identity.
After using 50 Ways, 96% of managers felt more equipped to discuss actionable ways to challenge bias in their teams and 95% of participants report they are more committed to taking action against gender bias.
