Gender Equality: She’s Got a Plan
“A stalled revolution”—that’s what the Center for American Progress called women’s professional advancement in a 2017 report, “The Women’s Leadership Gap.” Whitney Wolfe Herd, cofounder and CEO of Bumble, calls up this conclusion as the jumping off point for her blog, “The Business Case (and Plan) for Gender Equality.” She recites the dismal stats (“women held only 18% of board seats at S&P 1500 companies, yet hold almost 52% of professional-level jobs”), and notes the obvious incentive to make change: “research shows that gender inclusivity drives bottom-line growth.” Among her suggested solutions to gender inequities in the workplace: implementing robust parental-leave policies, flexible working conditions, whistle blower protection policies, and increased mentoring. Sounds like a plan.
