To level the playing field for women in corporate America we are asking our companies to change. We are asking them to change deeply embedded institutional cultural norms. It is not a challenge to be taken on by the faint of heart. Many people are going to say no. There are going to be set backs. But it can be done.
This case study from Catalyst is an amazing inside look into how one company, Rockwell Automation, has done it. It’s certainly not easy but the outcome is worth it. When cultures are inclusive, everyone wins- women and men.
It all starts with dialogue. We have to talk to each other about this difficult topic of gender balanced leadership inside our companies. Get informed, gather up the courage and start the conversation today.
