Why Women Will Continue To Be Mistreated At Work
Helen Situ

One unfortunate thing that doesn’t often get brought up…bringing suit, publicly complaining, or even complaining in private can be a career ending or damaging act.

The startup community is small. Word gets around. And a simple google search can bring up any public information about lawsuits or public complaints.

If one brings up issues with a place of employment, they may be blacklisted as someone who’s “likely to sue” when seeking future jobs. Or as someone who’ll attempt to change a company culture.

Losses due to such blacklisting can far exceed any potential financial gain from some lawsuit, and after investing years or decades in building a career…well, risking that career is something to be very seriously considered. And it is very seriously considered when women bring up these issues.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
