An overview

Gender often still determines the distribution of resources, tasks or responsibilities in an organization - sometimes more than competence or expertise.

Gender identity refers to the sex to which a person feels they belong. This does not necessarily have to be the same as the gender a person was assigned at birth. Gender identities are very diverse and labels can change, so there can be no binding or permanent definition. For example, people identify as trans*, inter*, non-binary, or cisgender. However, gender identities go beyond these labels. If gender-diversity is clearly underrepresented at the workplace, the minority groups is often unconsciously excluded or not taken into account - this is called a glass ceiling.
