Tackling gender bias

Implicit bias around gender and a reliance on convenient stereotypes has a profoundly negative impact both on an organisation’s individual employees and on its performance as a whole. This short course looks at the business case for addressing gender bias and sets out some key practical steps for tackling it.

If organisations truly believe that their people are their biggest asset, then addressing and eliminating bias has to be central to everything they do – from recruitment and development through to advancement and promotion to leadership roles. Research shows that gender stereotypes continue to impact negatively on both men and women in the workplace and as a result, organisations are routinely failing to recruit, retain and advance the best people.

In this ground-breaking new course from Skill Boosters, Professor Binna Kandola and Dr Jo Kandola look at the reality of gender inequality in the workplace, how a reliance on stereotypes is holding us back and what practical steps we can take to tackle implicit bias around gender.
