Combating gender bias

The last few years have seen a big increase in gender diversity in organisations. Whilst the willingness to action is there, the results have often been patchy. For example, there are less than 10% female executive directors in the FTSE 350, and 262 of these companies have no women executives on their main board1. Furthermore, the rate of women being promoted to boards is slowing down2. The typical organisational response to these issues is to focus on improving processes, (as these are easy to correct) leaving attitudes towards gender often unchallenged. Yet stereotyping remains a major cause of gender inequality. Changing attitudes has been difficult and time consuming….. until now.

We are delighted to be working with The Bias Gym to bring SCULPT to our clients. Based on extensive scientific research, SCULPT is an innovative and effective approach to combat gender stereotypes. For less than five minutes a day SCULPT challenges the associations made with men and women and replaces faulty stereotypes with new, more accurate mental associations. SCULPT can be completed at your desk or on the go using your mobile or tablet, making it easy to integrate into a day’s work.

Gender bias is not inevitable – we can do something about it. SCULPT will propel you on that path.
