These stereotypes perpetuate myths about male and female roles in society*:


stereotypes dictate that

it is only the woman who can provide the care children need - devaluing the vital role played by the man in the home.
In the
, stereotypes help men advance towards senior roles but hinder the progression of women.
Bias is the inclination to hold a partial perspective regarding an individual, a race, a religion, a social class, a political party, or a gender, based on our beliefs about what is safe, familiar, and valuable.*

It is part of our nature to be attracted to information that confirms these beliefs and to screen out information which conflicts with our expectations. This keeps biases constantly in operation...*
The First Barrier: Unconscious Bias
What is it?
Why does it happen?
What can we do to change?
Unfortunately, just like in the video, unconscious bias is continually - unconsciously - at work in our minds, leading us to ignore evidence that does not fit what we are looking for.*

Humans categorize and systematize information because it’s an innate process and at the heart of our evolutionary success. For example, take gender categorizations:

Me? I'm not biased!
Harvard IAT Test results show 76% of 400.000
men and women
have at least a slight automatic association of
Male with Career and Female with Family
Gender Bias
- Leads to false assumptions, incorrect judgments, and erroneous decision making.

- Inhibits performance of those on the receiving end of the bias.*

types of bias. They have an
powerful effect on our judgement.
What are the risks of bias?
What is the truth about gender difference?
Men and women have physical distinctions that
do not
influence features such as intelligence, skills, or behavior.
The simple truth is, any difference in gender is a product of nurture and not anything genetic or hardwired in our brains.*
Scientific data proves that there is no difference in leadership effectiveness between men and women.*
"Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus"
"Men are from Earth and Women are from Earth!"
George Carlin - Author / Social Critic
Women cheat on their partner at about the same rate that men do.*
When playing anonymously, women are more aggressive at online games than men.*
Men buy and sell shares less rationally than women.*
Makes you question some stereotypes, doesn't it?
positive stereotypes
, they are still stereotypes.
"Women bring something different to the organization because they are softer, better at relationships, more empathetic..."

Be more conscious about our language, symbols, narratives, and practices.
Recognize that our beliefs about gender are indeed beliefs and not true knowledge.
Realize that gender bias has an impact on all forms of organizational life and create awareness of this.

Diversity matters because it improves our organizational culture and visibly impacts business results.
Being aware of potential gender bias is a great starting point.
Managers have a crucial role in achieving these results.
"The power to make the change is in our heads. The world of work is what we think it is, what we say it is, and what we hear it is. If we can think, speak, and hear anew, then we can make it new."
Putting it all together
SABMiller is committed to pursuing gender balance with a vision of improving key indicators in the next 5 years.
Outcomes from studies have shown that balanced gender diversity can have positive results on:

But... why does it matter?
A greater diversity promotes a better representation of the community in which we operate (consumer market and labor market) enabling us to compete with a much broader spectrum of ideas and insights.

What do you think gender diversity brings to the table?
Gender diversity is about ensuring balanced representation of both genders and valuing their contributions on equal terms.

It's not about feminism, machismo or sexism.

Gendered Roles

Case 2. A woman in a pink dress is interviewing for a clerk position in a warehouse.

It is critical to focus on what the person can achieve and is capable of doing independent of their gender, physical appearance, origin, sexual preferences, social class, and age.
In a study by Princeton University conducted in October 2012, 127 professors agreed to determine a candidate's suitability (on a scale from 1 - 7) and starting salary for a role. They were all given the exact same CV, but, for half, the candidate was called John and the other half it was Jennifer. On average, Jennifer received 17% lower score and 12% less salary.

"Beer has shaped social interaction for centuries. But to maintain its relevance in this century, we have to continue to change the way in which we market, package, and serve our beer to ensure that we win both with women and on new drinking occasions. This doesn't mean taking a simplistic gender specific view or targeting women overtly, but creating inclusive, authentic, mixed-gender drinks that keep the beer category relevant as consumer behaviors and preferences change.
