Bias continues to hold women and workplaces back

Women have made important gains in representation in the last few years. But we’re still a long way from equality.

Companies need to act now to support, retain, and advance women. Combating the biases women face at work is critical to getting this right. Research shows that bias contributes to women being passed over for jobs and promotions. Almost 60 percent of women regularly experience microaggressions at work. And women of color, LGBTQ+ women, and women with disabilities face more acute biases. But less than half of employees say they’ve spoken out against biased behavior at any point in their career.

That’s why we’re joining forces with International Women’s Day’s 2022 initiative to #BreakTheBias. We’re committed to supporting you in arming your employees, managers, and leaders with the tools to push back against bias and inequity—because from challenge comes change.

This International Women’s Day, help your organization #BreakTheBias at work -

50 Ways to Fight Bias is designed to empower people to identify and challenge bias head-on.

The program has been used by thousands of organizations. And it works: 95 percent of participants are more committed to challenging bias and 96 percent of managers feel better equipped to talk about bias with their teams.

In this one- to two-hour IWD 50 Ways to Fight Bias workshop (optimized for virtual sessions), your teams will:

  • Watch a short video

    to learn about the most common types of biases that women face at work—including the compounding discrimination women face based on their race, sexual orientation, disability, or other aspects of their identity.

  • Discuss, in small groups,

    specific examples of bias, brainstorm solutions together, and learn research-backed recommendations for what to do.

  • Commit to one action

    they will take as individuals to #BreakTheBias this year.
