When it comes to a woman’s day-to-day experience and her career trajectory, one key player has the most significant impact: her boss. To truly support women in the workplace, managers, men included, need to step up.
The good news is that many of the things you can do to be a better manager for women are easy.
The Good Boss was written to help managers support the women they work with. Men fill two-thirds of all management roles, yet it has been overwhelmingly women who have embraced the book and its message. To really make an impact on the experience of women at work, we need men to actively engage in supporting women.
