Why

Learn how to identify gender bias, as well as tips, strategies, and tools you can use to create a more inclusive work environment.

We spend 33% of our lives at work. That’s a lot of time in an environment designed to capture employees’ best work. Most of today’s organizations are failing to live up to the promise of equitable and inclusive workplaces for all.

One key reason? Gender bias.

Recognizing, understanding, and dismantling it is hard, but it’s necessary for workplaces to thrive and innovate. Join Margaret George, Lenovo’s Global Diversity & Inclusion Program Manager, and Kristy Fair Ballentine, Lenovo’s Director of Global Communications, as they lead an open conversation about how to identify gender bias and what strategies/tools you can use to create a more inclusive environment.

AMA Triangle’s Commitment to DEI

In 2020, AMA Triangle developed a little something we like to call, “The Whole Marketer Promise”. This promise is our commitment to always remembering that while we are marketers, we are PEOPLE first and foremost, and right now, more than ever, we’re striving to be the community our members deserve, a place where each and every person in the Triangle has the opportunity to feel that they truly belong because AMA Triangle believes that marketing is for everyone.

To align with our inherent belief that marketing is for everyone, in June 2020, AMA Triangle teamed up with AMA Sacramento Valley and AMA New York to establish a national Taskforce to design an official DEI Pledge for all professional AMA chapters. The Pledge would be designed to help all 70 chapters nationwide establish and implement DEI practices within their organizations. To aid in our efforts, we grew our Taskforce to include AMA PDX, AMA New Jersey, and AMA Austin. Once the Pledge was complete, we realized we’d need to consistently provide DEI support for every chapter that signed, so we subsequently established monthly DEI Townhalls, DEI Collateral, digital campaign materials, calendars, and holiday guidance before officially launching on September 21, 2020.

When AMA Triangle says that we believe in DEI, we mean that we believe so deeply that we’ve dedicated ourselves to leading the charge for nationwide change. As marketers, we have the ability to influence what our communities, customers, and clients see, think, feel, and believe. As an industry, we believe that it is our greatest responsibility to ensure that the copy we’re creating, the images we’re posting, the language we’re using, and the ads we’re producing are, at their core inclusive and free of personal, professional, or cultural bias. We’ve committed not only to educate ourselves but to ensure that every single aspect of our operations starts and ends with DEI in mind.
