It will be fantastic to not be held hostage to bias and be really 'seen'. Where can one start maybe, with recognising gender-based jokes and sexist remarks that exist in our everyday and stopping them.
This is our hope with the latest campaign, which highlights the outdated assumptions, beliefs and biases that hold women, and in fact all of us, back and turning them into more inclusive statements, mid-sentence. We are drawing a line on biased banter and making inclusion at Wates the norm.
