01:07- When did you start working on women’s leadership issues?

  • I started in 1988.
  • I was in a corporate position at some very good company, but I noticed what a poor job they did of understanding the more strategic talents that women had.
  • They are very good at giving them jobs and work to do.

05:18- Perspective on Inclusion

  • The book, The Web of Inclusion, came out in 1995.
  • It was the first place where the word inclusion was used in a business or organizational context.
  • At the time, it was considered a real soft skill.
  • As the nature of technology changes, organizations have become more reliant on the talent and brains of their people.

07:22- How can we start to make changes?

  • In the work I do with organizations, there’s been a lot of focus on unconscious bias.
  • In my experience, looking at behaviors is more effective than looking at biases.
  • There are very deep and very difficult to root out.
