A women’s perspective

We’ve been asked to present at women’s perspective to what needs to change in our company or rather what challenges we face and what we see as the way forward.

Some of the stuff identified so far are:

1. Too few women in the company.

2. Most of the few that are there, are mainly engaged in supportive roles.

3. The glass ceiling exists.

4. A day care/crèche would certainly help new mom’s to return to work and continue working with better satisfaction and balance.

Personally I think this company has a lot of potential but its the few bad apples that always set the rest in the crate rotting. Women on the other hand need to become more professional, competitive and understand that there’s nothing wrong with stepping on a few toes in order to get going.

So while I am dividing my eggs in between various baskets and scoping out new opportunities, I am not exactly holding my breath quite yet.

  1. what has to be addresses
    Is the company sincere or are they paying lip service
    How many women want other than support roles and are they willing to give up time and lots of energy to overcome the male domination
    is it a multi national company if so what is the percentage of women in top end positions


  2. livingvoraciously

    Well so far Dick it seems that quite a few women are willing to give up the time and invest the energy in furthering their career in this company but there’s very few opportunities to do so. Even though it is a multi-national company (Ericsson is based in Sweden & is about a 130+ years old), they’ve only been operating in Bangladesh for about 10+ years. There’s virtually no ladies in the top end positions and the only one there now is a Swede. I guess you are right, what remains to be seen is whether this was just lip service or not.
