BONUS: UPFRONT and The Female Lead
Did you know that a staggering 90% of people have a negativity bias towards women (UN report). But what does this really mean? Ruchika Tulshyan explains it perfectly: "The same systems that reward confidence in male leaders, even if they're incompetent, punish white women for lacking confidence, women of colour for showing too much of it, and all women for demonstrating it in a way that's deemed unacceptable."The problem isn’t that women aren’t confident but that confidence in women is not rewarded in the world.Listen to this bonus episode from a recent LinkedIn Live event we joined with The Female Lead with Edwina Dunn OBE, Founder of The Female Lead.Tune in as we discuss why “You Don't Have Imposter Syndrome”!

Moment 45: Meet The Trick

Moment 45: Meet The Trick
Meet The Trick. A way to talk to your children about the patriarchy. To help them understand we’re all being tricked into thinking particular things about boys and girls, women and men.I learned about the trick from Robert Webb - his six year old daughter describes the trick as “the thing that makes women get rubbish jobs and makes men sad”My little boy is 5 and this has become our family code word for gender nonsense and you can use it too! We have introduced the idea to his grandparents too. Giving language to complex ideas is powerful.Without much conversation at all my little boy could tell me all the ways he sees the Trick tricking him and his friends.❌ womens are beautiful and men are not❌ mens drives cars and womens don’t❌ boys can’t wear colourful nail varnish❌ only boys can play football❌ boys can’t have long hair❌ boys don’t like acting, only girlsHe’s FIVE, lives in a country where gender equality is priority and well, I’m his mum! This stuff runs so deep - we have to listen, be pro-active and role model our asses off. Has your child ever noticed the Trick?Will you try it?www.the-trick.coSign up to our next workshop, You Don't Have Imposter Syndrome, here: https://workshop.weareupfront.com Click here to sign up for Bond 7Sign up for UPFRONT's email newsletter hereFollow Lauren and UPFRONT:Twitter: twitter.com/_laurencurrie_Instagram: instagram.com/_laurencurrie_ and instagram.com/upfrontglobalLinkedIn: linkedin.com/in/laurencurrie/ Hosted on Acast.
