In this episode…

When it comes to leadership, women are often judged not based on their skills, value, or the results they can bring — they’re often judged based on gender stereotypes. So what can we do to address these issues and reach a more equitable world?

Oftentimes, our unconscious bias leads us to make generalized assumptions. But it’s our job to challenge those assumptions in order to create a better, more equitable future. We have to move past the labels and understand that each individual has a unique skill set, no matter their gender.

In this episode of the Lead Like a Woman Show, Andrea Heuston sits down with Stephen Shortt, Managing Director of ETC Consult. Stephen shares how he became a feminist father for his daughters’ future, how one seemingly ordinary conversation with his sister changed his whole perspective on men’s roles in supporting women leaders, how to challenge unconscious bias and limiting beliefs on gender, and so much more!
