An internal survey of faculty, staff, and program alumni at Stanford University’s Byers Center for Biodesign revealed some of the same patterns as their industry-wide research on gender bias. While well-intentioned male leaders reported a respectful and inclusive office environment, some female faculty and staff experienced unconscious bias and microaggressions. And while both male and female leaders thought they were making strides in diversifying our fellowship program, alumni found their progress lacking. The team adopted a “small wins” model of change that focuses on setting and achieving narrow, attainable goals to produce a sense of success that is contagious and builds momentum for larger gains and systemic transformation. They’ve identified 10 small wins organizations can undertake immediately to help build a staircase that will lead to larger success.
