The Challenge:

Recent neuroscience research shows that part of the reason why we still see a gender gap in leadership is due to the unconscious wiring of the brain. The subtle behavior that stems from unconscious bias can potentially exclude a group of people while giving a slight advantage to others. This results is an unlevel playing field that creates work environments where one group is more dominant than the other.

How does one navigate bias in the face of persistent stereotypes and slow-changing cultures?
