International Women’s Day Panel: Breaking Biases in the Workplace
Accelerating Equality for Women in the Workplace
Each year, International Women’s Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Though we’ve made some strides in the realm of gender equality, many women are still dealing with discrimination and biases in the workplace that prevent them from reaching their career potential.
This year, we’re focusing our International Women’s Day panel discussion on the ways we can work to #BreakTheBias in the workplace and create a level playing field for women. Join our panel of powerful women for this fascinating discussion and learn how they are making a difference and setting new standards in the workplace. We’ll discuss ways to create a workplace free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination; work cultures that are diverse, equitable and inclusive, and ones where differences are valued and celebrated.
This panel discussion will be moderated by Lindsay Dent, Woman of Influence for the RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Awards and founder of Pink Crown Creative. Join us for this important panel discussion and hear from a diverse panel of women in business from a variety of backgrounds and industries. They’ll share their experiences on what bias is, how to break bias in the workplace, and how we can collectively accelerate equality.
