March is women's history month and this year's theme is "Weaving the Stories of Women’s Lives." Is disparate treatment in the workplace an element of women lawyers' (and other professionals) stories?
I came across this presentation entitled, "LeanIn Together: 8 Tips for Managers" that describes how men and women are treated differently at work and how managers can address those issues. I've decided to share it in honor of women's history month.
Do you see these kinds of things still happening in your workplace?
Are female lawyers treated differently and do they have more trouble getting promoted than men?
Is the fact that we need a "Women's History Month" at all evidence of disparity?
Do these issues need to be addressed in order to create future women leaders in the legal profession and elsewhere?
Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
