Awareness is an excellent place to start. Educate yourself and those around you by becoming more aware of societal double standards. Only then will you be able to recognize them, challenge them and ultimately change them.
Here are some things to get you started and help you build your awareness:
- Take the HeForShe - Building Gender IQ online course (PwC Partners and Staff click here; external visitors click here)
- Watch the short video on blind spots by Dr. Banaji, author of Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People
- Take at least one Implicit Associations test (PwC Partners and Staff click here; click here to access the tests through Harvard University)
