We All Have the Power to Right the Opportunity Imbalance in the Workplace
Melinda Epler got her dream job as an executive at an engineering firm; but soon after started, she smacked into the glass ceiling. As a woman at that company, she had great difficulty being heard and acknowledged. In this important talk, she discusses how some people have to work ten times as hard as others simply because of their gender, race, disability, class, and more. Epler says that “allyship” means understanding that imbalance and working to correct it. Allyship can be as simple as not interrupting others, acknowledging them, and being an advocate for change.
