Fear of failure and women in the workforce


Why We Do It

This is not a new topic, but it is still relevant. We want to explore the main drivers behind the fear of failing, and why women take it harder than men when they fail. We want to have a conversation around the following topics:  

  • Personal anecdotes relating the pay gap, gender bias at the workplace, gender equality, and gender parity (or the lack of). 
  • The definition of Failure and the difference for men and women: gender threat, education, and cultural stereotypes. 
  • The impact of the pandemic on women in the workforce.
