Know what you are already doing to support women in workplace, and do more.
I’m not going to tell you what to do. I will ask you to think about what you’re already doing to support women though. I have interviewed 60 men, like you, in the tech industry. From CEOs to individual contributors. In the book which I’m working on, I sorted the material and created 7 composite characters of men. I have given them names, and together their voices and I offer a different message to character. You are all at different levels of willingness to support equality and women’s advancement in the workplace, You will identify with a character and read what the character above you on the matrix is already doing. All of you are at different levels of awareness around how much your contribution matters and how your words and actions impact others.
I the book, I will share stories and quotes by the men I interviewed. What they are already doing to support women and minorities to thrive and advance in the workplace. Small and bigger things that you can do too.
