October 26th Chapter Meeting

Beyond Mars and Venus:  Overcoming Gender Stereotypes and Other Biases


RTP Headquarters

12 Davis Drive


(11:00am networking ~ 11:30am food ~ 11:45am announcements ~ 12:00pm program)


Men typically take charge. Women typically take care. Wait, says who? Our panelists take issue with these stereotypes—and many others—for good reasons.


Unchecked biases hinder organizations. They thwart professional growth, leadership development, and team performance. They play out in both overt and covert forms, ranging from overly positive to negative impressions based on someone’s gender, race, ethnicity, socio-economic status, religion, sexual orientation, able-bodied status, or some combination thereof—none of which accurately predict job performance. Gender bias is not just an isolated piece of the diversity puzzle; it’s often a compounding factor for minority populations.

So how do we overcome bias, especially if we’re not aware of it? The first step is to shine a light. In this live Q&A session, panelists will discuss gender stereotypes and other biases they’ve seen in the workplace and share approaches for dismantling them. You will discover:


·        Examples of how bias harms organizational performance and opportunities

·        How cultivating diversity in culture, thought, and skill positions organizations for greater innovation and success

·        Effective approaches for addressing gender bias in the workplace

·        How to dig deeper to address other biases that intersect with gender

·        How to support greater equality in the workplace without fear of missteps

   This session has been submitted for pre-approval for both   credit.
