Women in Technology: Identifying and Understanding Gender Bias & Inequality
Track: Professional Development
Gender Bias is something we're all guilty of. It's typically unconscious and often stems from long held misperceptions about women & job responsibilities. We'll learn how to identify gender bias when we see it. We'll discuss why it's important, how it affects our work, decision making, hiring, etc. We'll discuss strategies for how both men and women can combat this at work & in our every day lives. This session is about developing positive solutions to a problem that often goes undiscussed.
