Unconscious bias series: Overcoming bias for career success
According to the Canadian Women's Foundation, 35 per cent of Canadian women in 2015 had a university certificate or degree, compared to 30 per cent of men. Yet despite equivalent time at a job, women are significantly less likely than men to be promoted. They are over-represented in part-time work and lower-paid work, and some have yet to achieve pay equity.
