Gender equality in the workplace by offering family-friendly benefits

O​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‌‌‍​organizations attempt to address gender equality in the workplace by offering family-friendly benefits such as parental leave. However, many mothers and fathers are still reluctant to take long parental leave due to potential bias and discrimination from their co-workers and supervisors at work. In this assignment, you are required to apply relevant OB theories/frameworks to address the following questions: 1. Using theories/frameworks in perceptions, stereotyping, and attribution in Topic 3, discuss the challenges that mothers/fathers may experience when they utilize parental leave; 2. Using the Triple Bottom Line framework in Topic 3 (also briefly addressed in Topic 1), discuss how progressive parental leave policies may contribute to the sustainability goal of the organization. 3. In light of the challenges and benefits addressed in the two questions above, what recommendations (maximum three recommendations) could you offer to organizations as to how to address gender bias and improve access of parental leave for women and men in the workplace.
