By some estimates, gender equality in the workplace won’t be achieved until 2095.* That’s not good enough. HeForShe is taking action now for equal opportunity and fair pay.

Be the Change

Discussing inequality at work can be difficult, but doing something about it can feel even harder. Here are some tips to help you root out gender bias on the job.

Don't Laugh

Some jokes just aren’t funny. Confront biased speech by refusing to respond, pointedly turning away, or reminding the speaker that offensive language creates a toxic environment for everyone.

Pitch In

Not all men want to do physical work. Not all women want to take notes. Rotate responsibilities for common tasks and make sure everyone has a chance to pitch in.

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.
