50 Ways to Fight Bias – Free workshop

December 14, 2021 @ 1:00 pm 2:30 pm

During the 50 Ways workshop, participants will learn about the most common types of bias that women face at work and how to combat them.

Why fighting bias matters?

Millions of women have been driven out of the workforce by Covid-19. Many more are struggling with burnout and considering downshifting their careers or leaving their jobs.

To avoid unwinding years of progress toward gender equality, companies need to act now to promote, hire, and retain women. Combating the biases women face at work is critical to getting this right. Research shows that bias contributes to women being passed over for jobs and promotions. Almost three in four women experience bias at work, and those who do are more likely to leave their jobs. And women of color, LGBTQ+ women, and women with disabilities face more acute biases. Yet only one in three employees, including managers, challenges biased behavior when they see it.

Knowing that bias exists isn’t enough. We need to take action—and Lean In’s 50 Ways to Fight Bias program can help.

What is 50 Ways to Fight Bias?

50 Ways to Fight Bias is a free workshop that will equip and empower you to identify and challenge bias head on. After this workshop, men and women will feel better prepared and more committed to challenging bias. As a manager or leader, you will be better equipped to talk about bias with your teams and take actions towards a more inclusive workplace.

During the 50 Ways workshop, participants will learn about the most common types of bias that women face at work, discuss specific examples, and get expert recommendations on what to do.

Who should attend this workshop?

Men, who want to be better allies and support women to have the same opportunities to succeed and lead as men. Men—who are the majority of managers and senior leaders—can help make this happen.

Women, who want to learn more about biases and actions that can be taken to combat them.

Managers, directors and senior leaders, willing to create a better workplace, by leveraging the full talents of the population. Companies with more women in leadership roles perform better, and employees on diverse and inclusive teams put in more effort, stay longer, and demonstrate more commitment.

Hiring managers, investors and VCs, willing to help level the playing field by challenging gender bias in situations that are of extreme importance for women’s careers like hiring, funding and financing.

Anyone wanting to learn ways to challenge stereotypes, confront bias, and leverage your knowledge on unconscious and gender bias.
