Gender bias is an unfortunate reality that is often present in company culture and organizational practices. It can impact development conversations, the hiring process, and even compensation decisions. As a result, it can hinder employers from hiring top talent and promoting them to leadership positions.

The pandemic and a looming recession may be contributing to more bias in the workplace, affecting female employees in a range of roles from service jobs to the C-suite. Women are also tasked with balancing work, domestic tasks, and family responsibilities – which has resulted in lower labor force participation rates. In North America, the female labor force participation rate is currently 10% less than it is for males.
