"Only when women wield power in sufficient numbers will we create a society that genuinely works for all women. That will be a society that works for everyone." - Ann-Marie Slaughter
The debate of gender inequality in the workplace is not new and while strides have been made, the question still begs if they are far-reaching or fast enough. Previously, women believed that they needed to emulate men to rise into leadership positions. Today the story may be different.
What are things companies can and should be doing to enable change in this arena? What can women themselves do? If you're not putting yourself at the forefront - ask yourself why? What's standing in the way? Perhaps there is a block that needs to be addressed head-on. Maybe it is time to reengage your strengths.
And at the end of the day, this talk isn't about men or women in the workforce - it is about organizations, leadership and the messages we tell ourselves.
