Workplace Fairness Weekly (2/28/22)

Topic of the Week  Women Changing the Landscape of Work

This Women's History Month, it's time to admit that the breaking through the glass ceiling simply isn't enough.

We have to make it our floor.

The workplace wasn't created with gender equality and the success of women in mind. When you add race, age, identity and sexual orientation into the equation, it's hard to ignore the systemic disparities that continue to exist. Bias and normalized cultural stereotypes continue to expose themselves at work and beyond through discriminationharassmentpay inequitiesretaliation and more.

Throughout March, we'll be highlighting individuals who are transforming the landscape of work across the country. We'll also be sharing valuable information on the legal rights and laws that protect women in the workplace. 

Learn more about your rights against discrimination at work here.

Thought of the Week

"While we certainly have a long way to go, I’m excited by the increasing number of women CEOs leading IPOs and large funding rounds. As this moves from an anomaly to an expectation, we will see more investor support for women leaders at all levels in 2022—giving a chance for more voices and styles to build the next generation of companies."

–Amanda Richardson, CEO at Coderpad
