Changing our Workplaces to Meet the Needs of our Workforce


Mona Andrews

Our current workforce has evolved significantly in the last several decades. However, our workplaces have remained stagnant, based on a society that no longer exists – one in which being a stay-at-home mom was the expectation for women. As Shelley Zalis explains, “The rules of work were written 100 years ago, for men and by men, because women simply were not in the workplace.” Our workplaces, in large part, still cater to men. They do not challenge biases or invest in mentorship or support that would welcome women and encourage them to pursue leadership roles; they still assume talent looks like a man. This status quo is not sustainable; we must evolve our workplaces to match our workforce.
