The issue of gender bias often rises to the surface for organizations when it causes an acknowledged exodus of female talent or concerns of liability -- or both. But having the conversation about unconscious gender bias isn’t an easy one to have, especially in the workplace. At this event we will bring women and men to the table to have an open and honest conversation about gender bias – and what it means for men, women and the organization. Orange Grove Consulting’s approach - we understand that the environment required to address gender bias needs to be one of mutual advantage – the needs of men, women, and the organization must be considered so all parties can emerge as beneficiaries.
Employees, managers and senior leaders avoid the discussion of unconscious gender bias as a result of their lack of awareness, fear of blame or lack of understanding of its repercussions. This workshop focuses on building an understanding of what it is, how to recognize it, and how to counter its impact. Specifically, the training helps participants identify signs of gender bias within the career pipeline for women and identify ways to remove unnecessary barriers blocking women’s advancement, We help all parties learn the skills to increase the support for women without compromising quality or high performance expectations. This workshop provides a forum to have a discussion, giving participants a language with which to have subsequent discussions.
