The buzz: “I’m gonna tell Mom on you.”
Women remain under-represented in government, boards, C-suite and influential business roles – often due to unconscious bias. A man named “John” or “David” is more likely than a woman to be on a board.
But the unintentional blame-and-shame messages and enablement in workplace diversity and inclusion programs often leave many men feeling excluded and alienated.
How can we get past the gender-divide to value the entire workforce?
The answer is not simple “awareness”. Better try “inclusion nudges”.
The experts speak.
Tinna C. Nielsen, Move The Elephant: “I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.” (Rosa Parks)
Dr. Gabriela Burlacu, SAP SuccessFactors: “I’ll tell you who has it the hardest [in this country]. White men! We make the unpopular, difficult decisions, the tough choices.” (Jack Donaghy, 30 Rock, played by Alec Baldwin)
Dr. Patti Fletcher, SAP SuccessFactors: “Part of being optimistic is keeping one’s head pointed toward the sun, one’s feet moving forward.” (Nelson Mandela)
