You’re sitting in a meeting and your ideas are going unheard. You’re just as qualified as your colleagues, but you’re feeling undervalued. On top of that, you’re trying to balance work commitments, a sick child at home, helping your elderly parent, keeping up with your children’s schedules—the list goes on. And as you sit in that meeting, you think “What’s the point? Is this all really worth it? I’m fighting to push my career ahead and feeling stressed out. It’s just not worth it.” The good news is that women are no longer alone. Companies and brands are starting to get it—and starting to understand that they can help.

This blog is written for men, talking directly to men. Men who have an interest in women (whether heterosexual or bisexual).

Even more specifically, the men who say that they want a strong, independent woman. The men who find powerful, determined women sexy.

The men who write on forums that they are looking for women who pay their own way, won’t ‘rinse them’ and have their own careers and minds.

The men who say they love an intelligent, educated woman because they are ‘feisty’. Ew.

Sound like you? Sound like a man you know?

New words stick when they come from below, and respond to a real need.

While 27 percent of chief diversity officers find themselves still having to make the case for diversity, inclusion, and belonging in the workplace, the good news is that the majority of top leaders already understand how critical these efforts are. Indeed, in my work in talent and diversity at Google, Disney, and other large firms, I’ve found many leaders eager for actionable frameworks and advice to create more inclusive cultures. But again and again I find one thing plaguing their attempts: fear.    By Daisy Auger-Dominguez

The activism of Generation Z consumers puts them in a unique position to effect actual change at the business level in ways previous generations weren’t.

Hispanics represent the many voices that make up the tapestry of our country.

If you’re a woman in North America, the OECD estimates that you make $10,000 less than your male counterparts each year, and you’re charged between $1,300 and $2,135 more for products and services. It’s a gender fine that adds up to about half a million dollars over your lifetime—and that’s if you’re lucky. If you’re college-educated, a professional school graduate, a minority, or a Millennial, experts estimate that your gender fine ranges between $1 and $2 million.
