How to tell if your company really cares about promoting women
I have been following Caroline via LinkedIn for some time and she's been writing incredible articles about women in business.
I just re-read this again and thought it would be a terrific share for this group. It's also my first posting here so hope it's helpful #bettertogether :
These 2 points really struck a chord for me:
"A guilty delegation. Women are less likely to delegate tasks at work and it’s costing them the opportunity to work on more strategic projects. While handing off work to others is key to being a successful leader, women are more likely than men to be seen as aggressive and assertive while delegating. [WSJ]
No women, no applicants. During the recruiting process, companies who do not show images of women in presentations or have female presenters see a drop in female applicants. If companies don’t show job seekers a diverse representation of their workforce, the assumption is that you are at an advantage if you are a male at the firm. [HBR] "
What are the factors you're thinking about/evaluating to tell if a company really cares about hiring and promoting women?
