This is a Toolkit to help you understand gender bias & stereotyping, which limit women’s access to senior leadership positions in the workplace

Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People includes this one, “Seek first to understand, then to be understood.” According to Covey, once people understand through perceptive observation and empathetic listening, they are able to courageously state their own needs and wants. This toolkit is about seeking to understand gender bias and stereotyping which play a significant role in limiting women’s access to senior leadership positions in the workplace. Engaging in open dialogue about gender stereotypes and the effects of those stereotypes helps correct them. - See more at: http://www.empowerwomen.org/en/~/documents/2016/01/28/17/18/learn-about-...
