Celebrating Women's History Month
March is Women's History Month, as we celebrate women, how are women in the workplace doing?
Can women successfully pursue a career and balance those with the role of wife, significant other, mother, daughter, sister, friend, and neighbor and community member?
Why do some women seem to be successful and others seem to experience failure and rejection?
Can women find personal and professional success in what is still a male-dominated society?
Are women accepted in non-traditional jobs and careers or are they met with “this is no job for a woman”?
Are women receiving equal pay for equal work?
And finally, Have we come a long way baby or do we still have a long way to go?
The Promotable Woman: Have We Come A Long Way Baby? comes 20 years after Dr. Northup’s initial research project The Promotable Woman: What Makes The Difference. Her passion for helping women in developing the skills, attitudes and behaviors required for achieving equity in the workplace is the foundation for Have We Come A Long Way Baby?
One of the most critical issues effecting the modern day work environment is the impact of the changing workforce. Women will continue their strong presence in the labor force with increasing numbers moving into supervisory, management and decision-making roles. Organizations will need to prepare women with the necessary skills to meet the challenging requirements of the future.
THE PROMOTABLE WOMAN, HAVE WE COME A LONG WAY, BABY? is a multi-dimensional program exploring the factors that have made the difference in the lives of successful women and is based on research about high performing people, both men and women. While the skills essential for professional success are common to both genders, research has shown that women must incorporate additional traits in order to achieve optimal success in the workplace.
