Why so Few Women Leaders? Understanding the Impact of Intersectionality on Unconscious Gender Bias

  • 5:00 PM – 5:55 PM
  • SYKES ROOM 254

In today's workplace, unexamined assumptions, double standards, and invisible barriers embedded in organizational cultures, constrain opportunities for women. This workshop will present findings from new research on how intersectionality affects barriers to women's leadership. Time will be given to discuss these barriers and brainstorm possible solutions.
