Broken Windows

In Many Organisations Women Continue to Experience Everyday Sexism and Bias in Their Workplace.

In many organisations, there remains a gap between rhetoric and reality, with female managers continuing to experience everyday sexism and bias in their workplace.

Fixing these 'broken windows' is the most urgent challenge facing any manager trying to support gender balance in their organisation.

This campaign reveals the 'broken windows' of gender bias that still – for far too many women – mar the reality of work. This can include being talked over in meetings, being described as pushy or shrill when they are being decisive or firm, or being objectified. Our aim is to bring to light these behaviours, encouraging both men and women to call these out in the workplace.
