WCL AFTER FIVE: 50 Ways to Fight Bias

What percent of women have experienced bias?

Join Women’s Center for Leadership’s 50 Ways to Fight Bias, developed by the Lean In organization & Stanford’s Women’s Leadership Innovation Lab.

Explore five types of gender bias including performance, attribution, likeability, maternal, and affinity, as well as double discrimination & intersectionality bias. Not only will we learn to define these different types of bias, we will examine situations, the root of the bias, and what we can do in-the-moment to re-set reality based on factual evidence.

Price: $20.00 includes appetizers and wine.
