Episode 79: Equal and Different

I understand the fear a lot of women and some men have in denying gender differences...but now we are strong enough to say we are both equal and different.
— Avivah Wittenberg-Cox

This time we re-connect with a guest I first spoke to in 2014. Avivah Wittenberg-Cox appeared in episode 41, Stop Fixing Women, Start Fixing Companies. She writes about gender for the Harvard Business Review and I knew I wanted to book her again when I read her piece To Hold Women Back, Keep Treating Them Like Men.

In this episode we discuss why companies should treat women differently. We get into the whole nature versus nurture debate, and Avivah talks about why company women's networks may be a waste of time. 

This episode is once again supported by Write, Speak, Code.
