How Unconscious Bias Affects Mothers Returning to the Workforce

Many women find it hard to return to work. Are negative perceptions and unconscious bias hampering women who want to return to work?

Susanna Nickalls, our Director of Catalyse Consulting gives an insight to unconscious bias by sharing why we have biases and why it is important to be more aware of them and talk about them.

By taking the Gender-Career Implicit Association Test, we can understand how quickly we associate female and male terms to family and career. The Implicit Association Test shows that 3 in 4 people have an automatic association of Male with Career and Female with Family.

This shows that there is a need for us to be more aware so that we can overcome the automatic association we make that might hinder women to rejoin the workforce.
