About the Webinar
It is said that if 19th century is known for class war between landlords and peasants, 20th century is known for clash between capitalists and wage earners, 21st century witnesses clash of genders – mainly men and women. Everything starts with gender bias and understanding the importance to remove it.
Gender bias is prejudice or preference towards one gender over the other. Sometimes it happens consciously sometimes unconsciously. It sometimes is subtle and sometimes obvious. This and other types of conscious or unconscious biases at work place notably and disproportionately affect success rate of women.
Not only women, it sometimes affects men also in different way. If people become aware of how they are getting carried away by the bias, then they start relying less on assumptions set on traditional and outdated opinions about the roles of men and women. It helps in improving the work environment.
