Women in the workforce typically believe that if they just work hard and produce great results, they will be justly recognized and rewarded--too often they are taken for granted instead. This session uses the results of studies (from Yale, Harvard, SHRM, etc.) and stories to highlight the unintentional biases.

SUMMARY
Research indicates that women have been socialized from an early age to be modest about their accomplishments, to the extent that "Inside Amy Schumer" did a devastating skit about a group of women who couldn't take a compliment without diminishing themselves. Women in the workforce typically believe that if they just work hard and produce great results, they will be justly recognized and rewarded--too often they are taken for granted instead. This session uses the results of studies (from Yale, Harvard, SHRM, etc.) and stories to highlight the unintentional biases. These unintentional biases are demonstrated by others’ biases about women as well as women about themselves—biases that hold women back. We’ll cover the five strategies for overcoming these internal and external barriers. They are behavioral strategies that anyone can implement to ensure their accomplishments have the impact and receive the recognition that they merit.

We will discuss how to stop limiting yourself. Don't let insecurity, the need to be perfect, or fear of failure hold you back. We’ll examine how to balance being respected and being liked, and how to get yourself heard and your impact recorded.
