The statistics on the number of women in leadership roles in the design and technology industries are not good. Very few organizations have women in active leadership roles. And although more women graduate from higher education in creative industries than men, women still earn 20% less than men. So why are women so underrepresented as leaders?

AIGA Women Lead has teamed up with designer and sociologist Leyla Acaroglu of Disrupt Design to create the Gender Equity Toolkit.

It’s a new set of resources including videos and a downloadable activity set that gives your creative team a secret weapon for busting through one of the leading causes of disparate access to leadership positions in the design field: implicit gender-related bias.

This toolkit is designed to help overcome the invisible barriers created by gender bias and to foster equity in the workplace. Equity is
 all about giving people access to the opportunities and resources they 
need in order to overcome barriers 
and flourish.
