Equal respect expectations

Equal respect expectations

As a young woman working in investment banking I was never paid the same as the men but I also noted that the men just assumed they were respected, AND WERE, until or unless they blotted their copybook in some way. We women had to earn the respect at each step and level through sheer hard work, innovation, going above and beyond the norm, etc before there was a level of inclusion or possible advancement. Now, 30 years later I see my 30 year old niece reach a level in business where she is getting the same treatment and I have a 17 year old daughter who is highly capable and at this stage believes she can do or be anything she wants. I want to work to ensure they have a genuinely equal chance to do that and don't have to look back and see their daughters still in the same position.
