Join us to hear Anneli Blundell take a practical look at the invisible forces that shape women in leadership and what each of us can do today to make a real difference.
Gender equality is a tricky topic. Organisations and leaders know the conversation is important, but healthy discussion can be mired by political correctness, kneejerk responses or a hesitancy to engage at all. We’ll explore:
- Bias – it’s not the problem we think it is
- Backlash – how to overcome the double binds of regular career advice
- Blinkers – how the paradox of privilege keeps us stuck
It’s time to get real. It’s time to review the data, share the research and encourage robust discussions that lead to real action. Are you ready?
