Two times this week clients stated that we need more women to be allies for women.
Whenever a subject surfaces more than once, I have to dig in. I get curious.
We need more allies for women. Women alone cannot solve this problem. 50% of the population will only solve 50% of the problem.
So, why does this happen?
The tug of war gender bias exists in many organizations. The perception that there is only room for one woman to be on the leadership team.
What can you do about it?
Surface this hot topic and ask questions like, "how are we building a culture of allies here with women being allies for women?" "what are things we can do to be more inclusive and support across genders?" or simply share this episode and ask a team member or ally what they think.
Inclusive leaders have candid conversations. They listen to learn.
