What does the #BreakTheBias, mean to you?
Breaking the bias in this particular context of gender, means fully breaking the tendency to prefer one gender over another. It is a form of unconscious bias, or implicit bias, which occurs when one individual unconsciously attributes certain attitudes and stereotypes to another person or group of people. These ascribed behaviours affect how the individual understands and engages with others. Moving forward, bringing equality within our workforce and life, with no pre judgements or stereotypes of gender is a crucial must!
Have you seen an evolution of gender equality in the field you work in?
Yes I have, but we still have a very long way to go.
How do you promote more interim female leaders into the industry?
Brining more female key note speakers on board when we hosting events with both clients and interim managers, giving more visibility to female leaders and interim managers in this case.
