Shaking off the past means changing how we act.
Danielle M. Villegas‘s insight:
This was brought to my attention via Guy Kawasaki on LinkedIn. I don’t think it matter what field you are in–this is important. Certain fields have made some decent strides, but it’s not enough. The items outlines in this article are simple enough. They just have to be implemented. The majority of my IT career has been male-dominated, and that’s not a bad thing. However, STEM positions are still fairly uncommon for women, so any little bit to help get more women involved–and it can be as easy as the steps outlined in this article–that can make the difference.
