What you will learn

You call that “fair”?

Science and experience confirm: there is a difference across genders in the quantity and quality of feedback.

Women get less feedback. When they get it, it’s less valuable and probably … fake. In this webinar, you’ll hear what the research tells us about women and feedback and learn useful solutions crowdsourced from thought leaders and practitioners.

Join our conversation with Angela Lane and Sergey Gorbatov – practising senior executives in talent management, researchers, and authors of FairTalk: Three Steps to Powerful Feedback
