Gender Bias Patterns and How They affect Our Careers

Women still face adversity in the professional world. Often times, leaning in hasn’t been enough to overcome unconscious gender bias. Karen Griego will discuss four patterns of gender-biases and how to navigate the ways these patterns affect our careers. She will also discuss and provide tool kits with tips on:

  • Searching for new roles
  • Writing a winning resume and cover letter
  • Preparing for interviews
  • Building your network.
