SSI WISE workshop Manchester Dec 2015

Addressing the gender gap in the community

Most of us recognise that diverse teams are good for productivity and output. But do you know how to improve diversity and build a more inclusive environment? Have you ever heard of unconscious bias, stereotype threat or imposter syndrome? Do you ever feel like you aren’t good enough to be in the community or feel like a ‘fraud’? This BoF will discuss the real effects of these three topics on the workplace, providing the audience with an introduction to each theme, how they may affect you and how they impact employers, employees, advisors, managers or your peers.

The BoF will encourage audience participation with the use of audience focused discussions based on case studies developed with generating ideas, encouraging attendees to tackle difficult situations and understand the underlying, often hidden, causes for the under-representation of certain groups in our community. This discussion will also be of benefit when considering improving diversity underrepresented groups other than women.
