WIE Panel –September 24th, 2020
Gender bias in the workplace
Women scored higher than men on 17 of the 19 most important leadership skills, according to a recent survey . Nevertheless few women reach the top of the institutions in which they work. Moreover, lots of research has shown that unconscious bias plays a significant role in hiring and promotion decisions, which further contributes to the lower number of women in key positions. Therefore even if gender should not matter anymore in the 21st century, it still does.
Which are the strategies to combat gender bias in the workplace?
The WIE panel held during the 2020 IEEE Radar Conference aims at discussing these issues.
