We all know there’s a gender gap. You may have already taken steps to make sure there’s a woman on your committee, that there’s a woman or person of color candidate for the new job, that there’s a woman on you executive team. You may be wondering, “What else can I do?”
Well, there is something. There’s one step we can all take to better level the playing field. Dr. Sasha Shillcutt, anesthesiologist and founder of the CME, Brave Enough, gives us a preview of the More Than One campaign that will be introduced at the upcoming Brave Enough Conference.
And what is that step we can all take? It’s to invite more than one woman to sit on your board, to speak at your conference, to participate in your research, to attend your meeting...
Research shows that when more than one woman is in the room, participation among minority groups increases. When more than one is present, it sends a clear message that minority voices matter. You’ll get more engagement, more perspectives, a better bottom line -- it’s just better all around for all involved.
