Women's WIN event - Unleashing the Diversity of Human Potential
Despite recent changes to legislation, gender biases are still prevalent within corporate workplaces. Pre-determined ideas of how men and women should behave, although invisible, are powerful and often underestimated. For women in leadership positions, navigating the workplace can be tricky. Coupled with a hyper-competitive economy, women are often faced with assumptions and expectations of how they should fit in and behave. Research confirms a double bind; that when stereotypes are challenged, and women demand higher pay, credit or fail to collaborate, they are often judged as unpleasant.
Equally challenging is imposter syndrome and perfectionism, causing some high-achieving women to struggle with an internal monologue of self-doubt, attributing success to external factors while internalising failure. Despite wanting senior leadership positions, by failing to internalise their accomplishments or by constantly seeking the approval of others, they may unintentionally sabotage their own career advancement.
