“The bias against introversion leads to a colossal waste of talent, energy, and happiness.”
— Susan Cain, author of “Quiet” and Co-founder of Quiet Revolution
The Quiet Tech Network disrupts a bias found in too many companies: the bias against introversion. Learn why organizations mistakenly exclude potential leaders from positions of influence, and how you can create a work culture where all temperaments can thrive.
Bold. Confident. Ambitious. These attributes are often associated with not only men but the “ideal” employee. Those who enjoy working in groups are seen as the best team players, and those who talk the most at meetings are assumed to have the best ideas.
But what about those who prefer to work alone, or who prefer to listen and process information during a meeting? How can these quiet employees thrive in work cultures that favor extroverts?
AnitaB.org and Quiet Revolution want to help organizations create cultures where people of all temperaments — introverts, extroverts, and ambiverts alike — can thrive. We believe the key to equality for both gender and personality differences is to expand the definitions of what constitutes ideal employee and ideal leader. To make this vision a reality, we have formed the Quiet Tech Network.
The Quiet Tech Network includes men and women of different temperaments from participating organizations. We provide these Quiet Ambassadors with coaching and online tools In turn, they apply their newfound knowledge to help their colleagues build inclusive teams and cultures.
Join the Quiet Tech Network today and help unlock the potential in all of your employees.
