The buzz: “I’m gonna tell Mom on you.”
Women remain under-represented in government, boards, C-suite and influential business roles – often due to unconscious bias. A man named “John” or “David” is more likely than a woman to be on a board.
But the unintentional blame-and-shame messages and enablement in workplace diversity and inclusion programs often leave many men feeling excluded and alienated.
How can we get past the gender-divide to value the entire workforce?
The answer is not simple “awareness”. Better try “inclusion nudges”.
The experts speak.
