“Work in the corporate” is many of ours dream,
For AZ,that is my theme.
Most workplaces in the #Corporate world are often exposed to this situation.The #Men Vs #Women is a common comparison though they are teamed up for common project goals.Lets go through them individually before we take them together.
Forenoon we find them all on phone
Afternoon straightaway in smoking zone
Meetings they attend only if airborne
And perks they want to claim all alone
At home starts their first duty
And so career is always an ambiguity
Expects work with high flexibility
Believes NO makeup is below dignity
Now taking both of them togrtherlets see what the results are.
As per a New research on “Genders divided on workplace discrimination”,we find alarming results even in this era of Modernization :
“74% of women believe that in terms of promotion and salary men receive preferential treatment in the workplace, while only 43% of their male counterparts come to the same conclusion – that’s quite a split.”
According to a survey, there is a strong agreement that females are still being unfairly overlooked in the workplace, with 59% of those asked confirming that it is their belief that sexist practices are still in place. However, when you separate the responses by gender there is a startling difference. In fact, 74% of women believe that in terms of promotion and salary men receive preferential treatment in the workplace, while only 43% of their male counterparts come to the same conclusion – that’s quite a split.
However, despite these discouraging figures, our survey suggests that in the long term, a change may be on the horizon. For the younger generation at least, this inequality appears to be less prevalent in their working lives than those of the older generation. Some 45% of 18 – 24 year olds agree that men generally receive preferential treatment to women in the workplace, compared to 66% of over 55s. Similarly, when asked if men and women receive equal treatment in the workplace, 35% of 18 to 24 year olds agreed with the statement whereas only 23% of over 55s agreed.
Today, female entrepreneurs are starting their own businesses younger than ever before, particularly in the field of technology. However, despite the younger generation reporting less inequality than the older population, more and more young women are leaving the workplace behind and branching out into business on their own.
This prompts us to ask whether the promise of workplace equality could be the very thing that’s empowering more women to set up business for themselves? And will those women who become CEOs of their own companies, do more for gender equality than their current male counterparts?
What do you think? Are you surprised by these results? How do you think gender equality influences female entrepreneurship? Does the future of workplace equality rely on more women becoming their own boss? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
