“ Sexism is a systemic issue, just like any other ism, and it can’t be solved by firing the handful of HR reps that were directly involved.”
Thanks so much for sharing your perspective and continuing to shine light on this HUGE ISSUE. Seeing the comments on Susan’s post were disgusting — (i.e. “Do you have any evidence so we know you aren’t just a scorned feminist” — I generalized) and only further propagates this problem.
The aforementioned quote really resonated with me; being a Black man passionate about workplace diversity, really understanding how similar and systemic racism and sexism is has helped me empathize tremendously.
Thanks for your insight.
