In an April 2, 2018 blog post on her site, Roseann offered advice on “How to Actually Support Women in the Workplace.” She notes that the struggle for equality for women in the workplace is an ongoing struggle. Parts of the struggle are quite visible, like equal pay, and other components are less tangible like the lack of respect some women face at work.
The first suggestion is to set diversity goals. Roseann Bennett notes that some big corporations have already done this.
Next, she says to be transparent about the actual implementation and status of diversity goals.
Third, she notes that men and women experience the workplace differently. Part of the problem is historical cultural biases that are easy to overlook.
Fourth, she says, “Hire more women.” And recognize companies may need to recruit women differently. Roseann believes that hiring more women is the morally correct course and that it is also a smart thing for a business to do.
Lastly, Roseann Bennett admonishes us to, “Never stop the dialogue.” While some may brush off talk of equality as inconsequential chatter, Roseann warns that some women see failure to continue the discussion as a sign that the company doesn’t care.
