2017 MISSIONS AND MARKETPLACE CONFERENCE SINGLE
Overcoming Gender Bias in the Marketplace and in Ministry
Author: Dr. Deidre Anderson
Product Number: MM17WSC1
Women’s struggles to push past biases that have marginalized them date back to biblical times. Perhaps some of the greatest examples in scripture are those women who went against cultural norms and risked being ostracized in order to make their way to Jesus. Although today’s gender discrimination is more indirect and subtle than it was in the past, it isn’t any less challenging. Gender bias still runs deep in the church and in the marketplace, and has hindered many women by causing them to shrink back from fulfilling their call to lead. In this workshop, we will address the subtle bias issues that confront today’s women in ministry and business, while empowering participants with tools to effectively: • Navigate their path to success and fulfill their destiny in a gender-biased environment; • Overcome double standards to dress for success and communicate in an authentic manner; • Balance their home and work life without toil and guilt.
