Women in the workplace

A particular area of interest for me is women in the workplace. It hasn’t always been the case though. I spent the first 15 working years focused on my work and career. I wanted to move myself forward. It is only recently that I started to think of the careers and experiences of other women. I want to see us all move forward.

It has been inspiring to watch a woman accept the nomination to run for president of the United States. I loved what Arianna Huffington said – another ceiling broken. I hadn’t thought about it that light until I read what she wrote. It’s an amazing time to be a women. We’re watching history unfold. There is still work to be done. And they may feel like baby steps to some, but they feel like steps to me. Small movements forward, towards equality. And they’re beautiful movements!

Can’t wait to see another Canadian woman prime minister, maybe for a longer tenure, though.
