Do you feel that you have been overlooked for a promotion or an exciting opportunity because you are a woman? Over 70% of women who work in STEM organizations say yes to that question. If no one listens to you, is there a reason to keep speaking up? If your talent is not being recognized does it make sense to exhaust yourself achieving other people's goals without being rewarded? The logical reaction to bias is to quit trying so hard to succeed in a culture, which makes success virtually impossible.
WITI's Survey research of global STEM companies reveals that most work cultures are systematically bias in ways that disempower women and others that don't fit the "in group" culture. Bias is today's hot business problem because it disempowers vital talent necessary to succeed. But traditional strategies of fighting for female equality are failing. What is succeeding is creating cultures that empower both women and men with new ways of working. You must become the change agent of a culture transformation in which men and women both thrive because respecting cognitive diversity is the highest value. You must become self-empowered because that will empower others.
