Has anyone ever noticed that while we (the hr profession) talk so much about diversity, that sexism is still well and truly alive, even in the hr world?

    Women have made great strides in the workplace. They’re more educated, open to opportunities and achieving goals that only men were said to meet, but while history highlights a vast equity improvement it appears it is still not enough. Society is shadowed by gender stereotypes that associate women with family and children and men there to dominate career success. Times are now changing and women are more confident and ambitious. Why should a stereotype have to stand in the way of woman’s success.

    It goes on, endless discussion around maternity leave and the propaganda of ‘special benefits’ that women apparently become entitled too for taking the plunge to be successful. Women don’t even want to bring up maternity leave when apply for a position. Why would we offer the idea of commitment incompetence or a passage to an unfair salary?

    They’ve got it all, how could a woman resist the talk of newly introduced benefits of: ‘freezing eggs’ and ‘menstrual leave’. To think that women are incapable of working at a given time each month isn’t discriminating at all…
