When it comes to gender equity in the workplace, many people think that working women are much further along than they really are.

Fact: most women are confronted with unique obstacles & setbacks as they work towards reaching their career potential

In recent years, researchers and advocates have drawn attention to issues of gender equity, influences policy-makers can have, as well as to how educators, parents, and mentors can affect change. As we made the film we’ve come across some resource we thought you’d enjoy seeing. If you’d like to add to this list, please send them our way!
