I knew something like this was going on. I’ve seen my female fellow students get low level employment while the males went into management and other lucrative career paths. But I didn’t know it was this bad.
But there was an experience of mine that bears a little on this. I am a white male but one of my proudest accomplishments was being invited to join the Black Student Society where I went to college. You see, they had lost their certification as a campus organization and I worked to get it back – so I was invited. I was a member in good standing through thick and thin until I left for law school three years later.
And being very proud of it, I put it on my resume.
I think you can figure out the rest of the story. Only when I pulled that off my resume did I start getting responses to my job inquiries.
It’s not just women.
This is a continuing problem in business ethics. First, it’s not fair to penalize people in hiring and promotion because of their sex. Second, it’s foolish to not have your best in the most appropriate positions for skills.
Now, I want you to treat women fairly because it is right but do note that it also very foolish to discriminate in this manner.
