Kid-friendly foods aren’t doing kids any favours

You are Allowed to Take Up Space: Part 2 MIND Feb24

You are Allowed to Take Up Space: Part 2 MIND

By Krista Fictional period piece or modern tableau? Have you ever been a lone woman in a male dominated workplace? I feel beyond fortunate to have worked in some wonderful, women-lead organizations. At the same time, I’ve also experienced being one of maybe 2 or 3 women sitting around a boardroom table with a dozen older men. It’s not a great dynamic. In these occasions I’ve observed a couple of outcomes: Women fall into the role of submissive contemplation, head nodding, and note-taking. Side note: as an introvert, I actually commend and have deep respect for this valuable role when it is CHOSEN by the woman enacting it. What I’m talking about here is when it is assumed that the women will fall into this role because it’s where we are socialized to place her. A seasoned woman might raise her voice, interject, and interrupt to make herself heard by her male counterparts. What I’ve noticed in these cases is that the attitude doesn’t translate well into the realm of all-women conversations. Sometimes it’s obvious which women are used to competing with men for their voices to be heard because they will then use the same technique to trample other women. So, it can be a problematic dynamic. For women, there’s the added responsibility of using their voices while also helping to amplify the voices of our sisters.
