Organizations that create a supportive and equitable business
culture enjoy the following benefits:
A culture where both men and women want to work
Enhanced productivity and retention
More productive working relationships between men and women
Increased respect and trust between men and women, men and
men, women and women
Reduced conflict, miscommunication, and misunderstandings
Better financial results Improved access to a growing, well-educated
segment of the workforce
Improved market share
and women have unique and valuable talents to contribute to
organizations. When these talents are merged in a supportive,
equitable business culture, the result is NOT a redistribution
of promotions, authority, and other rewards from men to women.
Rather, the result is the creation of a larger and
growing "pie" that can be shared by all participants. This
is a "win-win" scenario that provides a meaningful justification
for active participation by both men and women in gender.
