The Compassion in Objective Performance Reviews
with Anthea Rowe
3 simple steps for employees, managers and HR to improve gender equity and spot future superstars
Many companies want to increase the proportion of women in leadership roles. They host Employee Resource Groups (ERG's) and run training and mentorship programs for female employees. But studies from Harvard and MIT find the best tool to unlock women's potential at work is... the humble performance review.
This 90-minute workshop examines the surprising disconnect between workplace performance, perceived potential, and actual promotions. Participants will learn about "benevolent prejudice", the Pygmalion Effect, and the one word men NEVER hear in performance reviews. Employees will leave this workshop with new techniques to prove their value at work. And managers and HR teams will leave with tools to spot and promote their companies' next superstars.
