In all this talk about gender equaity in the workplace, T&A tackle the deeper equality issue of approaching work and success with feminine qualities versus masculine, and how both men and women can benefit from ditching their old paradigms and finding a new way of approaching success.  The girls talk with Lisa Marie Jenkins, professional coach, speaker, & author of 'WAKE UP, BEAUTY! It's Not About the Prince' on how exactly we can go about this,  why it's so important and how this affects our male/female relationships.

Show Notes

Historically, men were protectors and providers; women were compassionate nurturers. Both sexes were playing very specific roles (11:40)

The 70’s moved women into the angry, bra burning stage which was necessary to get the ball rolling but that is NOT what feminism is about (11:51)

The year 1985 is a benchmark-that’s the year when women started earning 50% of all college degrees (12:12) 

Today, we earn 60-65% of all degrees, Bachelors and Masters’ combined and we’ve been in the work force since the mid-80’s (12:16) 

Can a woman be nice and competent in today’s workplace? (15:15) 

Despite the higher numbers for advanced degrees, women only represent 4.7% of CEO’s in Fortune 500 companies and at major tech companies women only represent 20% of employees in all roles (18:30) 

Where and how do women struggle the most in the workplace?  (21:00)

What is ‘tentative speech’ and how does it hurt women?  (21:52)
