First, if it's YOU that's constantly battling stereotyping and sexism that can chip away at your ambition – if you're feeling like the battle is just too much and maybe it'll be easier if you would just re-think your dreams – then:

  • Fight that feeling.
  • Know that you're not alone.
  • Know that it's not You. The way that you're being treated is NOT your fault.
  • Know that most people aren't aware they're the culprit. So approach each day with a mindset of being the best version of yourself, not someone else's version of you.
  • Put yourself out there. You're here to be part of it...you're here to have a voice. 💪🏼

 

If you're thinking, “What can I do? How can I make a difference?” – then treat diversity and inclusion as a top priority. You can:

Ο Work to be more aware of your own biases. Do the best you can until you feel like you have a pretty good understanding. Then when you do recognize your biases, control them... do better.

Ο Seek out ways to increase the visibility of female employees and support the development of more female leaders.

Ο Sponsor women – give your personal capital to them.

Ο Ally with women – stand with women; work to push the bias and sexism away from women. Notice and correct instances of inappropriate behavior in a safe, respectful manner.

Ο If you're in a position of power, help to get work-life balance respected and accepted. Try to model alternative work/life strategies. Publicly show that you're leaving for a doctor appointment – to attend a family event – to be part of an exercise class.

Ο Establish metrics to diversify new employee interviews, hires, promotions, internship programs, as well as the diversification of a project team.

Ο Be a partner or relative who shares the care for children, elderly parents, or pets.

Ο Pay interns. When you offer paid intern opportunities you not only attract better and more diverse candidates, but you are also helping to end a gender pay gap problem.

Did you know that unpaid internships are disproportionately held by women? As the first sign of the inequality they will face in the workplace, an unpaid internship reinforces the idea that women’s work is less valuable than men’s, affects a woman’s negotiating power when they do look for a paid job, and contributes to her lifelong gender pay gap.

Ο Pay women what they deserve.

Ο Pay to see films made by women, with women as leads.

Ο Use these resources that other #Pioneers4Change have been using to lift up women & girls and self-evaluate themselves.

LOGLINE: Pioneers in Skirts is an engaging examination of gender parity in our culture from the perspective of a female filmmaker who was frustrated with her own problems in the film industry.

Not finding many answers within her profession, she decides to expand her search to include other industries and society in general.

In an inspiring portrait of perseverance and determination, director Ashley Maria not only shares her own story, but she follows the journey of 3 robotic girls and their fathers as well as a young mother – all while traveling the U.S. to investigate solutions, speaking to fellow pioneering women and interviewing topic experts.

By the end of her quest, Ashley finds out how we ALL can address the stereotyping and sexism that can chip away at a woman, hurt her potential, and make her feel like she must re-think her dreams.
