Breaking the Confidence Bias

What is the difference between self-esteem and self-confidence to self-promote—and how does it affect women in clinical practice?

According to a Harvard Business Review study, there is a significant gap in self-promotion between men and women, with men rating their performance 33% higher than women who performed equally. In this Mental Health Minute, Pepper Schwartz, PhD, of the University of Washington discusses the self-confidence gap between men and women, and some resources available to clinicians in supporting women’s mental health.

Dr Schwartz is a professor of sociology at the University of Washington, a renowned gender and relationship expert, and a consultant to iRise, a personal transformation app.
