Creating a Level Playing Field (Voice & Influence Series)

Implicit or unconscious bias is a major source of errors and poor decision-making. So how does one combat it? Stanford Professor and Clayman director Shelley Correll gives an engaging overview of how gender bias informs evaluations that women receive in the workplace, resulting in more limited opportunities, promotion and recognition. She details the latest research on how gender stereotypes are a cognitive shortcut that disadvantage women relative to men. Therefore, solutions that counteract the effects of bias are needed in order to create a more level playing field. All Clayman Voice and Influence videos include a downloadable discussion guide that include a personal inventory and skill-building, as well as links to further resources.
