Regularly I get questions from men why I support women empowerment initiatives and even more interestingly, what is going to happen with men if women fill more senior roles. I need to admit that I understand that for most men it is hard to realize what their female colleagues experience at workplaces, so I don’t judge their questions and comments. But what I would like to encourage male professionals to do is getting yourself more familiar with issues faced by women. Initiate a dialogue and ask them to share their experiences. This is the way to get more empathetic. On the other side, female professionals should be more brave in telling their stories about micro aggressions. A good and easy start towards empathy is reading this article which tells a story of a female lone coder. https://www.fastcompany.com/3008216/the-loneliness-of-the-female-coder

I am so happy to hear that Esther Duflo, her husband Abhijit Banerjee and Michael Kremer were awarded with Economics Nobel prize for their great work in fighting poverty. This award is even more special because Prof Duflo is only the 2nd woman and the youngest among both male and female winners. Esther Duflo and Abhijit Banerjee are also the authors of the well recognized book “Poor Economics”, which served as a great guide and inspiration during my volunteering time in Uganda with women groups. I would highly recommend to read the book for everyone who is interested to understand how poor think and what methods work.

What a productive weekend attending a virtual workshop on female leadership held by Mira Vasic from Women in Touch organization! I loved it! Mira started the session with a teaser on a couple facts on women employment in The Netherlands. Did you know that only 27% of dutch women work full-time? It was only in 1956 when dutch married women could start working. Really interesting! My biggest key takeaway from the session was about different type of personas women and men show at workplaces. It's crucial for us to recognise these styles in ourselves and our colleagues and determine which one is the best in a certain situation, even though everyone holds one most dominant style.
