There are gender stereotypes among employees in the organization (Существуют гендерные стереотипы среди сотрудников и сотрудниц в университете)

Gender stereotypes are widespread in the society about the characteristics and behavior of representatives of different gender, primarily men and women. Do you know such stereotypes and ways to overcome it?

From my point of view, salary transparency can help eliminate gender pay gaps and play an important role in helping achieve balance.

The current imbalance is even more apparent when women have children. The largest gap in pay occurs when women are married with children.
Transparency breeds trust between employers and employees, and this extends to pay transparency. In fact, for employees, trust and transparency are key.

I think that it is necessary to hold various events, lectures, master classes, where the organizers will be people who are not ordinary for such activities. For example, a master class on hand-made or a lecture on the upbringing of children should be conducted by a man, and a woman should tell about innovative technologies in the IT sphere. Then, perhaps, gradually these stereotypes will be erased from our society.

Although women are successful in gaining qualifications, their subsequent careers are often more interrupted, they have lower pay and their careers are flatter. As a consequence, they earn less than men over their life cycle, and their pensions are lower. The gender pay gap is often moving in the opposite direction from the gender employment gap.

I think that if it is necessary to get rid of gender stereotypes, first of all it is necessary to change the education system, namely:
1) Through the identification and exclusion from educational programs of any a kind of sexist ideas, that is, related to discrimination on the basis of sex;
2) Revision of the accepted in the school education concept of the historical development as a series of military conflicts and political upheavals

In my opinion, stereotypes can not be erased, because they are basically created by people who are not very smart and want to self-affirm in this way. These people will be around forever and there is almost certainly no way to change their mind. Even now a lot of people assocciate different groups with old stereotypes because they need these stereotypes to feel better about themselfs. In my opinion, the "smart" thing to do here is to ignore such obsolete things and help other people do the same.
