The Question I Hate

Press Release

March 7, 2018 /3BL Media/ - In honor of International Women’s Day on March 8, I’d like to share the question I get most often as a female leader.

It’s also the question I hate the most:

“What’s the business case for gender diversity?”

Ugh.

There are other variations:

“What’s the business case for diversity in general?”

“How does gender parity affect my bottom line?”

“How does being inclusive help me meet my KPIs?”

Recently I watched the movie “Hidden Figures” for the second time, and was again impressed by the achievements of the extraordinary African- American women featured in the film. Through a combination of brilliance and determination, these women overcame seemingly insurmountable odds and enabled the success of the NASA space program. Being reminded about the contributions of these women, I wondered about the many other unrecognized men and women who might have also faced difficult circumstances and yet forged ahead, making lasting contributions in different spheres of life.

A (Healthy) Shot Through the Heart!

I wouldn’t call myself a HUGE Bon Jovi fan, but when thinking about February, a.k.a. heart health month, and public opinion, all that comes to mind is “You give FATS a bad name!”  I am a child from the 1980’s and love some good Rock n’ Roll. I also grew up on the idea that fat in food was bad. The food industry used this trend to start producing many low fat or fat free products and replaced the fat with sugar or carbohydrates. Unfortunately, I think this perception continues to invade the minds of those outside health-related or nutrition fields.
