"Modern workplaces have a subtle old boy club - selective invites to the pub etc. There is also “a new boy network” new people coming in are replicating old systems e.g. Having a WhatsApp group for 'boys only' which excludes females leads to loads of potential for conflict"
"It is time to shift from gender and focus on being ‘human friendly” conflict is normal because without conflict you have stagnation”
" I prefer the phrase imposter phenomenon, this is when social pressures become personalised in the workplace"
"Women do not have the credibility that automatically comes with being a man, this makes women hesitate to speak up...the costs of speaking up is quite high even for men...Workplace mediators have to work harder to create a safe space for women during the process."
