The buzz: 'I’m gonna tell Mom on you.' Women remain under-represented in government, boards, C-suite and influential business roles, often due to unconscious bias. A man named John or David is more likely than a woman to be on a board. But the unintentional blame-and-shame messages in workplace diversity and inclusion programs often leave many men feeling excluded and alienated. How can we get past the gender-divide to value the entire workforce? The experts speak. Tinna C. Nielsen, Move The Elephant: “I have learned over the years that when one's mind is made up, this diminishes fear: knowing what must be done does away with fear” -R. Parks. Nicole McCabe, SAP: “One of the greatest needs of mankind is to be lifted above the morass of false propaganda” -M.L. King, Jr. Dr. Patti Fletcher, SAP SuccessFactors: “Part of being optimistic is keeping one’s head pointed toward the sun, one’s feet moving forward” -N. Mandela.
