What role do women play in ensuring that barriers are broken? In the workplace, there are subtle behaviors, attitudes, and expressed perceptions that create a culture of bias. These biases create circumstances and challenges that may help or hurt one’s capacity to excel with ease and gain essential support. These subtleties are seen in the questions we ask or don't ask. Who we decide to publicly advocate for/ who we give the benefit of the doubt to? Sometimes, the silent member of the team is expressing a bias as their lack of full participation can be perceived as disinterest. Do you actively support leadership? Are you aware of how your attitudes and behaviors may be contributing to disparities? As women, how do you ensure that you are addressing these concerns as well as increasing awareness of the internal beliefs you have and how those beliefs impact your behavior.
