Join us for the Gender in the Workplace conversation on Communication Bias. If you are a gender equity advocate or curious you can’t miss this conversation. Rarely discussed but powerful, communication biases perpetuate gender inequality in many workplaces.
For example, why is one person described as aggressive by some and assertive by others and how do these biases impact their ability to deliver? We will be discussing this topic amongst others with an aim to give you tools and ideas on how you can improve your workplace.
