Tomorrow is International Women's Day and the AVIXA Women's Council is already hosting in-person events and a big virtual event around this year's theme of #EmbraceEquity. There is a big question left to answer, what does equity look like in the AV Industry? I found some rather enlightening posts in the Xchange on topics closely related to women in AV and where challenges still exist and where they are being overcome: Pro-AV are Women Fully Welcome? The Exodus of Senior Level Women From the Workforce 19 Organizations Advancing Women in Tech What do you think or what are you reading that would help make the AV industry more equitable to women? @Tammy Fuqua @Alissa Haksar @Diana Quintero @Ericka Shumpert @Monisha Devaiah - want to help get the conversation started and tag someone else to keep it going?
I found this article shared by @Alissa Haksar in our Jobs Room truly fascinating. Approximately 20% of our population are highly sensitive persons (HSP) who "process the world more deeply". The article describes the characteristics of this invaluable trait and offers some meaningful strategies for success. Whether an employee or employer, I hope you'll find it a helpful resource.
