Session: Pushing through the unconscious bias
To beat the unconscious bias, women have to work extra hard to achieve success. Women are great at getting things done but they are judged harshly for the quality of work or ability, as compared to their men counterparts. What can women do to move beyond the unconscious bias and succeed at breaking the glass ceiling?
- Believing in possibility is first step towards success.
- As women we have to work hard, focus on quality and keep retrying
- Route to success is not necessarily a straight line. Learn from failures, be flexible & creative to find alternate routes. With perseverance, success will surely come.
