Which men do you know around you that you could start convincing (and I am not talking here about the ones that are already supportive)?

Dave Phillipson's comment, July 30, 2013 8:00 PM
When women start focusing on solutions, problems no longer will exist. You get what you focus on. Why focus on problems?
AnYes van Rhijn's comment, July 31, 2013 8:30 AM
I don't think anything will be addressed by one gender or the other. I personally don't like the word problem, I agree with you that it is better to focus on solutions. Only women focusing on solutions as you suggest isn't enough. It is a matter of both genders understanding the value of collaboration and of leveraging complementarities. Unfortunately there are currently more women understanding that then men and that is what I am referring to.
