We take a proactive and research-based approach to managing gender issues. Some women's leadership programs ignore gender issues, because they don't want women to feel that they are any different than men. Others try to "fix the women" by giving them skills to navigate more successfully in a man's world. We believe that both of these approaches can provide some value, but they are not enough.
Instead, we use the research and frameworks developed by our Center for Gender in Organizations, as well as our experience as consultants and practitioners to give participants a nuanced and realistic view of gender issues in the workplace. More importantly, we discuss how you can proactively address the issues raised by the unconscious biases that we all have, and recognize and address "micro-inequities" that can cumulatively impact your ability to be successful.
