Removing Gender Bias From Performance Feedback

Denise Reed Lamoreaux

Global Chief Diversity Officer at Atos

Learning Objectives

This session uncovers the hidden biases managers fall prey to while cataloging employee performance during the review process. Feeback provided to women is not as specific and tied to metrics as is the feedback given to men, and is often peppered with words such as "aggressive" "emotional" and "timid". Leaders will walk away from this session equipped with insights and information on how to provide actionable, equitable feedback to all employees.

Key Takeaways:

  • How to structure equitable performance feedback sessions so that all genders receive similar information tied to company goals and objectives

  • Exposure to models that assist in structuring a high impact feedback session
