A New Spin on Sexism in the (Tech) Workforce
This article certainly caught my attention. I can admit that I’d never really thought about these subtle differences in communication styles, and how they may be impacting career movement and growth.
I have noticed that women resist words they consider “bragging”, and are (usually) less comfortable embellishing on their achievements. But, I can now say that I will make a concerted effort to look for what this article calls more “feminine” adjectives, like “nurturing” and “supportive”. I’m not entirely sure that I have seen either on someone’s resume, but will report back, if I do.
