Recently, I participated in a panel on the NEW Workplace Equality for Women, hosted by Kenetia Lee. Due to technical difficulties, some of the audio is not the best, but if you can make your way through some of the crackle and pop, I believe this conversation will be very helpful to you.
During the conversation, we shared about workplace quality and some of the issues and statistics surrounding the topic. But I challenge you as you listen to this, NOT TO BE A STATISTIC and so what you need to get what you want in the workplace. Remember CAREER doesn’t mean staying with one employer for 30 years. It means that you have progressive achievement in your field of pursuit. Women do not have to buy into the statistics or become one. We have everything at our reach just like anyone else.
In my own career, I have had to work very hard but learned early that success is personal and the best person to define what success looks like for me. No statistic, no company, no glass ceiling, and no “male competition” would be the measurement for my success.
Here is a look at the panel discussion, Enjoy! At the end of the day, ladies we must remember Wonder Woman is a fictional character! We can have it all, but we CANNOT do it all – - at least not effectively!
This blog is an update to a previous blog, Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow…was it worth it Rhonda Lee? posted on December 14, 2012.
Fired Meteorologist Rhonda A. Lee appeared on the Steve Harvey Show which aired Friday, February 11, 2013. I watched The Steve Harvey Show hoping that Rhonda A. Lee would say something say that would change my mind about her termination. However she made comments that made me stick to my original opinion (which is KBTS rightly terminated Ms. Lee). Rhonda Lee continues to state that KBTS does not have a “social media policy”, however media outlets have reported that all employees were given the email directive on August 31, 2012 not to respond to negative comments on social media platforms including Facebook. When interviewed by CNN Contributor, Roland Martin, Lee said, “she never saw it!”
While Lee volunteered to tell Steve Harvey that the viewer apologized to her, she neglected to freely share that the viewer who made the comments was mentally ill and has been bi-polar since birth and that this was her second job in 11 months.
