Breaking the bias:-

I have started my own company at a young age and have always worked very hard to make it work.

When I started my work initially I was advised by a lot of people to hire a C.E.O to help me manage my work and this suggestion usually stemmed from the fact that I was a young woman starting out on my own, my family however always believed I would be able to manage on my own and this kept me going.

People in my company are always hired because they work hard and not because of their gender. I have tried to inculcate this practice from the very beginning that the people we hire are there because we think they can do well.
