My company is doing a big thing all month. We usually do something and in the past have had panels featuring women in leadership positions… I’m in a male dominated industry. But this year, they’ve stepped it up a notch big time. Now they need it to continue.
Yeah, I’m also in a male-dominated industry and think a lot about power imbalance in the workplace a lot lately. Last night when I was walking my dog, I was thinking about all the messed up things that have been said to me in professional situations. A few times I’ve been so surprised by a comment that I just sat there like a dope instead of letting the person know what they said isn’t okay. Anyway! We have a women’s event this afternoon and I’m hoping I can go, but it really depends on how the day goes.
