Take Action

People everywhere from all walks of life are working together to achieve gender equality. But it takes more – it takes you. Choose an issue to explore, learn more, and get involved.

Open the door

When hiring, insist on seeing diverse candidates for every position. Then be aware of how names and other identifying information can produce a subtle bias in hiring decisions.
