As a white man in a cosmopolitan bubble there are a lot of arresting findings in this report..

Quite shocking results and indeed as a white male married to a mixed colour spouse, I can relate to some of those. Simply going out for dinner, often the bill is presented to me even if my spouse asked for it or choosing the wine is supposed to be a white mans privilege whereas my spouse being French and grown up with it knows much better than I (again my spouse would have chosen the wine but I a asked to taste it ...... feels like the coloured one might have chosen but the white man knows better so should confirm by tasting). Yes it is prevalent in everyday live and I am not a saint either and have my unconscious biases ..... I do hope that I am being called out on it.

      Worth looking at the video in this article. Yes it shows the facts but equally it only confirms what we already know. It would in my view been equally or more powerful to turn the tables and let the men feel what it means to be held back in the climb up ....... maybe then the change would be quicker

      The emphasis on providing role models to girls at a young age and the need for mentoring throughout a career particularly resonated with me.
