Gender bias can be overt or subtle, and sometimes even unconscious, but until we have greater diversity we must challenge bias and educate people about discrimination wherever it is found.

Standing up to gender bias in the workplace

with Sam Quaye 


In a job interview, Quaye, a female, is asked a question that none of the male candidates receive: whether she has kids. What's the right response? 


We need to stand up firmly against subtle and overt signs of gender bias, such as women being evaluated on different criteria and not fully heard out in meetings. 

A gender balance in leadership can help combat this. 

We should seek to educate others on the harms of such biases in a sensitive and productive way. 

Apply this: 

  • Are you prepared to take a stand and be firm the next time you face such biases? How so? 
  • How will you help others take notice of bias and invite them to make productive changes?
