How to Make Sure Women are Seen, Heard and Respected at Work

Women Taking the Lead

Feb 8 2023 • 37 mins

Are you at a loss for how to handle those seemingly small awkward moments at work?

Whether it’s being interrupted, talked over, hearing women referred to as girls, or getting a men’s polo shirt as a company gift. It can be hard to know how to appropriately handle these behaviors and situations, and easy to convince yourself it’s not a big deal.

But it is a big deal. Because these behaviors create a culture that make women feel like they are not appreciated or respected as colleagues or team members.

Hence, my conversation with Dawn Hudson.

In this episode Dawn and I chatted about:

  • Why she and the Band of Sisters decided to focus on gender rooted micro-aggressions in the workplace?
  • The variety of suggestions for the same scenario provided by the different authors and how impacted their relationships and the approach to the book.
  • What’s at stake for companies if they don’t address microaggressions in the workplace.
  • Advice Dawn would give to anyone looking to advance their career.
