What does the outcome of the recent Presidential election mean for the progress of women in the world? Is this a setback, not only for women, but for other groups who are not white, straight and of European decent? I’m looking for constructive ways to respond to the revelation of the level of remaining racism, gender bias and fear of those “not like us.”
Are obstacles for women in the workplace likely to disappear when Millennials run the world? In our workshops, we address the unconscious “mind-sets” that still affect women’s ability to reach their potential. We are often asked if these issues are disappearing in the younger generations in today’s workforce. Do young people truly have a less “gendered” view of leadership qualities? Will their images of leadership and success be less predictably masculine? Will gender diverse leadership be the norm?
