Unity through Diversity & Inclusion: It Begins with All of Us

During Women's History Month, it can be very useful to take stock of where we are. Certainly we've come a long way since the days when women were not allowed to vote or own property, but there still remain many obstacles to true equity. Some of those obstacles have become so normalized, we might not even notice them, for example, subtle verbal microaggressions when women get interrupted or dismissed at meetings. Another one is the Goldilocks Dilemma. On the one hand, women are often not taken seriously for leadership positions when they behave in traditionally feminine ways. But if they step out of those norms, then they might get criticized for not being feminine enough, not a "team player", etc. This presentation will put our progress so far --and the journey ahead-- into a historical context, with some surprising statistics. We will cover the challenges that women still face, as well as strategic responses we can personally apply to those challenges going forward.
