Whether deliberate or unconscious, gender bias is holding women back in the workplace and making it difficult for companies to level the playing field. During the "50 Ways to Fight Gender Bias" presentation, we'll discuss the most common ways gender bias plays out in the workplace and concrete actions everyone can take to level the playing field and create a more balanced world. From how people of all genders view mothers at work to the compounding effects of double discrimination.
