Authors of the popular book Breaking Through Bias: Communication Techniques for Women to Succeed at Work, married lawyers Andie Kramer and Al Harris have been mentoring women and speaking and writing about gender communication for more than 30 years. This power couple brings a unique viewpoint to both women and men looking to navigate gender bias. They are frequent keynote speakers and conduct workshops for multinational organizations to better understand the world of gender bias.
In this episode Joey and Jason pick Andie and Al’s brains about all things bias, conscious or unconscious. They hit upon topics such as Intersectionality, implicit bias and how society’s stereotypes affect individual outlooks. They also discuss the intersectional hierarchy and how it affects people’s different levels of prejudicial experiences. Joey and Jason for the most part give Al and Andie the floor in this episode as they explain some concepts to the guys that often go unsaid or unnoticed in modern society.
