After almost 2 years out of the corporate consulting environment, my first 3 days back have saddened me. The male dominated environment is stronger than ever. The emphasis on gloss and glamour is still far out weighing substance and delivery. Wake up younger women and take back the ground that looks like it has already been lost to lap dancers and cheer leaders!
Gloss and glamour is not where your true power lies for either men or women – this is what fades over time. Substance, respect and integrity are the tools that carry you successfully through life. We all have the tools at our finger tips, they are not just male or female – but all available to us all! You just need to choose them.
