It’s always a needed space, which we need to give them a reminder that they are not inferior to men because in past ages women have suffocated inferiority and have declined themselves inferior.
Even now day’s women working anywhere, more importantly in male workplaces are daunted to raise their voice on any opinion. And it’s more importantly our duty to remind women that they are respected for who they are and we have hired them for their own skills, dedication and effective work ethics.
There are different ways that your business can execute these values. The initial step is to provide a safe ambience where women can stand up with their own voice of opinion so that they could face any challenges ahead.
