What is ** Gender Bias**?
Gender bias is the unconscious (or implicit) bias of preferring one gender over another. This can manifest in obvious and subtle ways.
This happens from attitudes and stereotypes that are sometimes systemic and out of an individual's control.
Our job in reaching equality and equity is to combat these biases any way we can.
Be an ally No matter your gender, you can be an ally to other women and non-binary groups by sticking up for them in meetings, conversation or in social settings by making gender bias discussable.
Have a clear policy If you don't have a policy addressing bias at your company, make one. There needs to be an avenue where discrimination can be reported safely and your company should be clearly aware of and against gender bias.
Destigmatize parental leave For all genders, parental leave is a right. Parents are not less dedicated to their company for spending the first weeks with their newborn or adopted baby.
