Having over 25 years of experience in Corporate America with Fortune 500 companies, I am well aware of the challenges women are confronted with.
Women are not receiving the "sideways" training and mentoring that men do. I believe strongly that “sideways” discussions are some of the most impactful conversations we have. Think about the things your children tell you in the car while you are grocery shopping, emptying the dishwasher together, doing a craft project together or playing video games on the couch. This is bonding time, where you learn what they are really concerned about with their friends, at school or with another family member.
In today’s corporate culture, women are less likely to play golf, going to ball games or out to happy hour one on one with a male leader. Many are not included in work travel or other opportunities where questions about harassment, sexuality or favoritism could arise. Most men are not willing to jeopardize their reputation or their career by being seen alone with a woman he works with.
What is a career woman to do? It is essential for women to receive the training and to develop their skill sets in order to further their career progression.
