International Women’s Day: Break the Bias

March 8 is International Women’s Day, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. This year’s theme, “Break the Bias,” challenges us all to examine how our thoughts and actions can help form a more gender-equal world.

In this Q&A, we talk with Cornerstone Research Chief Marketing Officer Susan Wittner, who this year celebrates forty years in the workforce and has two adult daughters beginning careers of their own. Wittner reflects on how attitudes toward women in the workforce have evolved, and the importance of confronting internal biases that can be just as powerful as external ones.
