Women in the Workplace — The Importance of Inclusion
The latest Women in the Workplace study found that almost two-thirds of women experience “microaggressions” (verbal, non-verbal and environmental slights targeted upon marginalized groups) at work.
“Anytime you have microaggressions, you have an erosion of trust. And anytime you have an erosion of trust, you have an erosion of profitability.”
– Laurie Ruettimann, Author, Speaker, Podcaster and Entrepreneur
Now more than ever it’s important for organizations to build inclusive cultures where every employee can bring their authentic selves to work. But inclusion isn’t just a top-down initiative. Inclusive cultures are made up of a thousand little moments that an employee experiences when interacting with their leadership teams, managers, peers and work environment.
