Roberto Cigna, Gender equality in business.
Evidence of gender inequality and bias is all around us. Outdated beliefs about gender roles hold women back, and also have an impact on men.
This affects the career choices made by both sexes. It’s especially an issue for women. That’s because workplace prejudice can affect their salaries and career progression.
Some people still believe that men are better suited to some roles and women to others. This isn’t just unfair and inaccurate. It also means businesses are failing to make use of the key skills of some of their employees.
