50 Ways to Fight Bias – combat gender bias at work - Lean in Canada

– Introducing – 


We are proud to announce 50 Ways to Fight Bias, our new program to help combat gender bias in the workplace.

Whether deliberate or unconscious, bias makes it harder for women to get hired and promoted and negatively impacts their day-to-day work experiences. This hurts women and makes it difficult for companies to level the playing field.

Pairing a card-based activity with a short video series, 50 Ways to Fight Bias brings people of all genders together to have real conversations about everyday forms of gender bias.

We worked with gender experts from the Stanford VMware Women’s Leadership Innovation Lab and Paradigm, a diversity and inclusion consulting firm, to develop a card-based activity that highlights 50 specific examples of gender bias in the workplace, encourages groups to brainstorm solutions together, and offers research-backed recommendations for what to do.

If you’ve ever asked yourself, “Was that bias? Should I have said something?” these cards are for you. We hope this program gives you the tools to address gender bias head-on and helps us all turn around the trends holding women back at work.
