  1. Reflect individually on a piece of paper about the language of job advertisements, can you think of some examples of words that may attract male job-seekers and discourage female candidates? Have you experienced this feeling of intimidation yourself? 

  2. Reflect on your current and/or previous workplace(s), have you completed or come across training for recruitment staff in dismantling gender stereotypes and bias from the recruitment process? Would your organisations benefit from such training? 

  3. Reflect individually on a piece of paper or discuss in pairs the use of blind CVs, what kind of biases and prejudices could this eliminate from the initial recruitment process?
