Here's the main points

  •  Anyone who has even a vague grasp of current affairs will know women are woefully unrepresented when it comes to leadership in the workplace.
  • A 2009 study by the Fawcett Society found that 51% of women and men from middle management to director level identify stereotyping as the major hurdle facing women at work.
  • Men shrug off a thank you; but don’t mind your manners in front of women and frankly, that relationship is TOAST.
  • There are many reasons why women don’t get the top jobs in business.
  • Women don’t need to be like men in the workplace; we bring with us our own skill sets.

Women's magazines ignore technology and demean women

Women's magazines ignore technology and demean women | WOMEN TECHNOLOGY CREATION | Scoop.it

Forget body image for a moment, women's magazines are perpetuating stereotypes about women and tech and it's dated, lazy and damaging.

 

"[...] Fashion, cosmetics, celebrities, lifestyle and attractive men: These are the only topics that we women care about – at least according to the UK's eight top-selling women's print 'glossies.'

 

Lady Geek's own analysis of this month's women's magazines (including Glamour, Elle and Marie Claire) exposes a near absence of technology topics or gadgets. We found that on average, fewer than 2% of pages refer to anything tech-related, and not a single page in November's editions has an article primarily about technology.[...]"

Hard Evidence: is there still gender bias in journalism?

Hard Evidence: is there still gender bias in journalism? | WOMEN TECHNOLOGY CREATION | Scoop.it

"Journalism is changing, and so is the role of women in the workplace. But the two are not always evolving in harmony. Women substantially outnumber men in journalism training and enter the profession in (slightly) greater numbers, but still only a relative few rise to senior jobs. The pay gap between male and female journalists remains stubbornly wide, and older women - especially if they have taken a career break - find it difficult to retain a place in the industry.

 

Women in journalism still cluster around particular subject genres. Historically, they were almost totally confined to “pink ghettos”, but as more women entered the industry, there was an expectation that their opportunities would expand and that they would duly embrace areas that had been traditionally male, like hard news, crime or politics.

 

But a byline analysis of UK national newspapers in 2012 indicates that some areas still have very few women, in particular politics, sport and opinion writing. These findings are also supported by qualitative interview data. There are similar lacunae in the US press."

Bernadette Barker-Plummer's curator insight, November 17, 2013 3:16 PM

Why are some 'beats' still inhospitable to women?  Clearly it is not the topics, women js are equally interested in politics, so maybe it is the practice of journalism in these arenas? Locker room based sourcing in sports? Boys drinking networks in politics? Byline analysis is the starting point, we need to figire out the 'why' also?

Empathy: the last big business taboo?

Empathy: the last big business taboo? | WOMEN TECHNOLOGY CREATION | Scoop.it
Empathy must no longer be perceived as a soft overtly feminine skill but as a commercial tool that businesses ignore at their peril

 

Lack of empathy in the workplace is one of the reasons that women find it difficult to flourish in corporations. In the technology industry alone,41% of women leave before 10 years. Must the companies that make our machines treat their staff as if they were machines too?

 

We can see the empathy deficit in the culture of business. Most corporations have become places where 'systemisers' flourish. According to professor Simon Baron-Cohen, these are individuals who excel at logic and analysis but tend to perform worse at empathy skills. Systemisers are more likely to be male.

 

Corporations place very little value on the other extreme: the empathisers: These are people who are good at reading emotions and understanding the dynamics of a situation and they tend to be female.
