Are biased gender assumptions limiting your career? In this episode, we unravel the five prevailing biased assumptions that tend to hold back women in the workplace, particularly in male-dominated industries. When people make assumptions about you based on your gender, they make decisions on your behalf without even considering your perspective first. In this episode, we dive deep into empowering strategies that can aid in overcoming these biases, asserting leadership, seeking promotions, and managing criticism. Discover how to bust these 5 common assumptions about women:

❌“Women aren’t willing to relocate or increase travel due to family obligations.”

❌“Women lack the commitment to work due to familial responsibilities.”

❌“Women are content with their current position and don’t seek promotions.”

❌“Women are not assertive or confident enough to be leaders.”

❌“Women cannot handle criticism or tough feedback.”

Gain invaluable insights on not just surviving, but thriving in the professional sphere, regardless of gender stereotypes. Whether you're a woman facing these challenges or an ally looking to better understand and combat these biases, this episode is a must-listen.
