PWN Geneva-Lausanne is the 26th chapter of the vibrant and dynamic global Federation “Professional Women’s Network” which was initially founded in Paris in 2003 and has since expanded across Europe, South America, and the Middle East. The global objective of the PWN across cities is to provide women with the tools, network and support resources they need to successfully assume leadership positions in business. At PWN Geneva-Lausanne, we aim to share knowledge across our network, notably through our participation in European, American, and global initiatives.

We all have biases. Each one of us has our own experiences, backgrounds and stereotypes that we learned which cause our everyday decisions to be influenced. Most of the time, we don’t even realize it. However, our unconscious or implicit bias allow our brains to make quick judgments and assessments without thinking much. For the point of this blog post, we will be talking about implicit gender bias, for example, a common bias (that is fading I hope) is that doctors are men, nurses are women.
