The Story of Woman

Woman and Workplace Bias: Gill Whitty-Collins, Why Men Win at Work

Listen on

Episode notes

In this episode, I talk with Gill Whitty-Collins about her book, Why Men Win at Work.

Going beyond the facts and figures of gender equality, Gill uncovers the invisible forces that continue to hold women back in the workplace. Using research and the experience of some of today’s top female leaders, she explores the psychology of gender inequality and shares powerful insights into how we can tackle it.

Some topics of discussion include:

  1. The current state of gender inequality in leadership and politics
  2. The (often) invisible forces that perpetuate the problem
  3. Likeability and perfectionist syndrome
  4. What men, businesses, and communities stand to gain with more equal workplaces
  5. Practical tips for women navigating these spaces
  6. Actionable steps for men, businesses, media, and more!

And more!
