Mansplaining defined: “to explain something to someone, typically a man to a woman, in a manner regarded as condescending or patronizing.”

The term has been getting renewed attention over the last week, after the social impact news site ATTN: released a video showing examples from the media of ‘Mansplaining’. The video makes some valid points – men need to pay attention to, and change, how they’re speaking to women, for sure. There’s no…

The survey recently released by Elephant in the Valley grabbed the headlines quickly with its shocking numbers:

  • 60% of women in tech reported unwanted sexual behaviours
  • 39% of those harassed did nothing because they thought it would negatively impact their career
  • 87% received demeaning comments from male colleagues
  • 47% were asked to do lower-level tasks that male colleagues were not asked to do

Why is this still happening?

It’s so easy to feel angered by the statistics — it’s…

My feminism makes it difficult for me to accept that women are different from men, mostly because “different” often translates to “inferior” in conversations about business. “Women aren’t as good at negotiating.” “Women are more emotional and less analytical.” “Men don’t ask for directions and therefore are more likely to forge their own paths.” And get lost, but that’s neither here nor there…

As a gender intelligence® expert, Barbara Annis has conducted thousands of workshops on how men and women interact, why they often misinterpret each other, and what they need to know to better understand and value each other’s differences.

As part of that work, women often discover that the way they have been interpreting male behaviors in the office — from a male colleague skipping over their idea in…

Negotiation is a skill that can take years to master, and for women it can be especially tricky, not because their ability is a factor but because their likability is a factor. For all the advice women have been given to step up, ask for the promotion, and make the case for a raise, many women have discovered that their reward for doing so is…

From their body language, to their word choice, and even the frequency of their smiles, working women hear a constant and often contradictory chorus about all the ways they should be behaving if they want to make their way to the corner office.

The broader message to women seems to be that they are simply not acting the part, and it’s the “acting” side of this which Barbara…

Over the course of the summer, the tech industry titans released their diversity statistics, and the gender gap in the numbers was stark. At Google, Apple, and Facebook, women account for less than a third of the workforce, and the tally for women in leadership and technical roles is worse. The act of disclosure itself, however, signaled an important step: the industry taking ownership of…

Working women seem to face an ever-growing list of attributes they lack and strategies they should adopt if they want to bridge the gender gap in their workplace. But how did fixing that gap become the responsibility of women? And has the exhaustive focus on what women should be doing differently, ignored the fact that perhaps their very differences are also their greatest strengths?

As the CEO and founder of her…

What never ceases to amaze us are the similarities in the challenges raised by men and women when working with each other, with women often admitting that their number one issue is that men don’t listen. Men are usually surprised when they hear this and their typical response is, “of course we listen!” The greater insight is that men do listen, but not always in ways that communicate to a woman that she’s being…
