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
Learn, Participate, and Grow in your personal development:
Connected conversations: Help groups bond and gain powerful insights into one another by seeking shared values as points of connection.
Empathy building: Overcome stereotypes by gaining understanding and insight that allows for a shared feeling or experience
Scenario testing: Build the mental muscle to tackle complex career hurdles, such as asking for a raise or negotiating a salary deal.
Grow: Put your insights to use with real-life practice in your office.
Fighting for gender equity is serious business; we made it fun (and we can’t wait to see how you put it to use). Share your stories #genderequity
