How men and women see gender equality differently

This is no doubt the constant question posed by marriage counsellors. We all have our own lenses through which we see the world. Our window to the world is shaped by experience, hopefulness, unconscious beliefs, personal filters. The challenge becomes how to reconcile opposing and strongly held beliefs in the interest of improving a situation.

Understanding the different viewpoints What causes this discrepancy of world view? And who is right?

What does the evidence tell us?

Her answer was that both men and women are right, at least based on what they are observing and what facts or cues they give weight to for their differing conclusions. Several explanations can be put forward for these differences: Potential versus performance Men assume policy leads to positive impact.

Women see that these policies are not leading to positive outcomes.

Women saw no results from the mentoring programme. For men it was the potential and the effort that gave them a sense of well-being. For women their conclusion of dissatisfaction was based on performance.

Women & Men – Different but Equal?

Confirmation bias We all do this. It is the phenomenon of sorting facts and observations in a way that confirms what we already believe.

Equal does not mean identical

We are all right and we are all wrong in our different lenses. We want the same things Both men and women are looking for the same thing at work, including compelling colleagues, mutual values and challenging work. Based on their experiences, men might be more likely to achieve those work goals; women, on the other hand, may have experiences that create a diminished sense of satisfaction.

Given these feelings of dissatisfaction in the workplace, women may have a lower threshold when it comes to deciding whether to leave the world of work or not. If you were a company executive and were informed that there was a gap in perceptions such as those described in the statistics above, at what level does that become a problem?

What should you do? For a leader it means awareness and the need to probe more deeply into what causes the gaps. Focus groups and internal workforce surveys disaggregated by gender or other salient identities can help. The leadership may believe, looking through their lens, that the organization has strong programmes for hiring, evaluation and feedback, career development and promotions, access to critical assignments, mentoring and sponsoring, and other inclusive practices.
