AWIS WEBINAR: WHAT WORKS FOR WOMEN AT WORK; 20th january 2015
This workshop gives women individual strategies for navigating workplaces that are shaped by implicit bias. Drawing on 35 years of experimental social psychology studies, it boils them down into four patterns. What Works for Women teaches us to recognize the patterns and also offers them very concrete strategies for how to navigate these patterns successfully. Individual Strategies are not solutions, however, knowing how to identify gender bias and understanding how to overcome this bias is key to a woman’s success. The webinar will give you with a deeper understanding of: workplace practices that suggest bias that will impact career success, frameworks to examine workplace pattern prior to acting on them and information how to use an understanding of implicit bias to reduce frustration and increase career success.

The IT Factor: Making Tech Jobs Female-Friendly
Although women haven’t traditionally had a significant presence in the information technology sector, the combination of increased reliance on technology and intensified recruiting efforts of companies in every industry has flipped this trend on its head throughout the past decade. Case in point: Computer systems analyst is one of the best jobs for women in 2014, according to a recent CareerCast report. The 12 jobs highlighted in the report are standouts because they employ a large percentage of women and offer competitive pay and positive hiring outlooks over the next eight years. For example, computer systems analysts earn a median annual salary of $79,680, and employment in the field is expected to increase by 25 percent through 2022. This projected rise is due in large part to technology’s shift from its place as merely the support function of a company to the core of the business, a movement that has occurred across all industries. Technology has infiltrated practically every corner of the corporate world and is crucial to the smooth running of the workplace. And more women in particular have entered the IT sector in the 21st century, especially as computer systems analysts, for two reasons, according to Tony Lee, CareerCast’s publisher. The first is that “more women are actually interested in IT now; they’re majoring and getting experience in the field.”
