S1 E19: Woman and Workplace Bias: Gill Whitty-Collins, Why Men Win at Work

S1 E19: Woman and Workplace Bias: Gill Whitty-Collins, Why Men Win at Work

If women have equal leadership ability, why are they so under-represented at the top in business and society? Why are we still living in a world where virtually all the top jobs are occupied by men? And why do we accept it? Gill Whitty-Collins asks these questions in her book, Why Men Win at Work, and provides some answers for us in today's episode. 

Some topics of discussion include:

1. The current state of gender inequality in leadership and politics
2. The (often) invisible forces that perpetuate the problem
3. Likeability and perfectionist syndrome
4. What men, businesses, and communities stand to gain with more equal workplaces
5. Practical tips for women navigating these spaces
6. Actionable steps for men, businesses, media, and more!

And more!
