Why Women Have to Try Twice As Hard At Work

The "What Works for Women at Work" video series by University of California professor Joan C. Williams helps you spot the four patterns of gender bias that shape today's workplaces. The videos offer proven strategies used by successful women to navigate subtle bias.

They end up having to "prove it again" and demonstrate the same abilities over and over.
