On April 2016, HDI Regina had the pleasure to have Kristin Kutarna Gates present and share her expertise about the topic “Navigating Gender in the Workplace”.
Despite our capacity to outperform our male counterparts, progress at the senior levels has stalled. Why does the gender gap persist? If not for capacity, qualification and determination – what else? Gender is complex. Evidence suggests that gender biases impact decision-making and have a disadvantaging effect on women in the workplace. The good news is we can manage them more effectively.
This presentation explored the concept of gender biases and impact they have on career progression.
