For International Women's Day, Danielle Monaro, Medha Gandhi, Crystal Rosas and Shelley Rome are taking over Z100 New York from noon to 1pm to talk all about 'Breaking The Bias,' and being women in a predominately male industry.
One subject the roundtable brought up was 'unconscious biases.' One subject Gandhi brought up with the unconscious bias of a lot of sports analogies being used in the workplace. "We don’t know some of this stuff. Unconscious biased is that guys don’t have to look this up." "That’s a really unfair unconscious bias put on us," Shelley tells the women, "I’m so passionate about my career and I’ve gone into my bosses office and I cried. It’s because I’m being so genuine and I’m just trying to express myself. Then all of a sudden you’re the 'girl that cried.'" Gandhi adds, "Men kind of get a pass when they get angry and yell about things and when women cry they’re weak and emotional, and none of those words are ok and it’s not true," she continues, "We’re having the same type of emotions just expressing them differently."
