"We have to stop imposing one size fits all leadership stereotypes on women and on men. We need to shift our focus from fixing women to fixing the systems and behaviors that perpetuate bias in the workplace."   Carolyn Tastad, group president of North America and executive sponsor of Gender Equality at Procter & Gamble

"We have to stop imposing one size fits all leadership stereotypes on women and on men. We need to shift our focus from fixing women to fixing the systems and behaviors that perpetuate bias in the workplace."

Diversity and inclusion efforts, especially related to promoting women in the workplace, have become a major topic of conversation in business. But that hasn't yet translated to more progress. During a keynote speech, Tastad told an audience of retail executives that businesses, including her own, need to give junior level women the kinds of responsibilities and experiences that will develop them as leaders. And current organization heads need to address the unconscious bias that affects their hiring and promotion decisions.
