Unconscious bias at work

I actually saw some women being limited in their advancement options at a former workplace for showing anger...and then I read this study showing the bias at work and the dollar cost in wages. Yes even cool progressive workplaces have bias, even when women are in leadership roles. So how can women get ahead? When we all get these biases out onto a conscious level so we can actively count them out.

It disturbs me that we still have to consider such things affecting Clinton's candidacy for president. Can't we just look at her positions and abilities?
