3. How to have a conversation about the gender gap during self-isolation with Ashley Maria and Lea-Ann Woodward Berst

by | Mar 26, 2020

On this episode of the Diversity at Work podcast, I sat down with Ashley Maria and Lea-Ann Woodward Berst, a mother and daughter team who produced and directed the documentary Pioneers in Skirts. In this movie, they talk about women’s ambition and the reasons why the gender gap really exists. If you’ve listened to my podcast for a while, you probably know that the gender gap is not a women’s issue, it’s a cultural issue. So if you want to have a conversation with your daughter, with your partner, with your coworkers of any gender, this is the movie that explains it. In this interview we talk about what you can do as a parent to promote gender equality for the next generation. How you can have conversations with both men and women and how you can have a conversation with your family. Watch the movie and get started to take action and figure out what your part can be in closing the gender gap.
