Hiring Policies to Improve Gender Balance and Overcome Sex-based Biases

Getting a gender-balanced team and overcoming bias need to ultimately be the goals of the majority of all corporate DEI strategies. In reality, this isn’t always the case, as gender diversity is still a real issue in many professional fields.

Unfortunately, in most countries, women, transgender and non-binary persons remain underrepresented. Sex-based bias is a problem that the modern workforce still faces. With so much attention paid to gender equality in recent years, some progress has been seen, but not enough. According to a study of the US by Payscale.com, the “uncontrolled gender pay gap, which takes the ratio of the median earnings of women to men without controlling for various compensable factors, has only decreased by $0.07 since 2015. In 2020, women make only $0.81 for every dollar a man makes.”

So how can companies promote gender equality in hiring and overcome sex-based discrimination?

Our speakers will discuss the following topics:

  • How to attract more women to apply for a position at your company
  • Techniques to overcome sex-based and gender bias
  • How to promote gender equality in the workplace

Join Genesys Global DE&I Director and Professor, Tandalea Mercer for an examination of culturally insensitive language in the workplace, as well as a look back at how the power of words have shaped many of the developments of the past year. From the historical origins of the divisive language dating back to colonialism to a discussion about how we can move away from it, this talk will cover a lot of ground from how words can disrupt inclusion in the workplace to how they may even incite violence. You will also take away practical examples of how to choose intentionality around language as a force for empathy and positive communication, as well as hear a call to action and how Genesys’ core values tie into this.
