This is the Men's version of WMF®

Men all over the world have taken this workshop and have been surprised by the results.

The cost:

$40,000 for up to 14 men

We strongly recommend
this workshop be done in locations and
companies where WMF® has been held.

If you only continue to train women but do not also re-train men you just make women more frustrated.

What Shall I Write About?

As I was thinking about writing this
article I had trouble focusing on one thing to write about.

There is so much going on in my world and in your
world that I was struggling with honing in on only
one topic. Then I realized the movement forward
we are seeing out of #metoo is exponential. It is
moving so quickly, worldwide,that it is hard to keep
up. That said, there are a few things that makes
this movement have teeth that I want to highlight
here.

First it all started with the gross acts of leaders in the Entertainment Business. A business that has kept women in subjugated positions for years. It did not start in the usual multinational companies we talk about.

Second Top Level Women in Entertainment, Tech and Consumer businesses are leading the charge this time.

In the past you couldn't convince a women VP or top tier female actor to lead anything that threatened the status quo. But now we see them actively seeking change. Hell, I remember a female corporate lawyer trying to get us to say she was our lawyer because the report we completed (the one 2 male VPs hired us to do) was so bad and pretty much established hostile work environment for all women in the company. Of course that didn't work!

Everyone from Reese Witherspoon & Chandra Rimes
to the women in top jobs at Wells Fargo are making this happen now. It's not bottom up anymore.

Wells Fargo, Google, Oracle and Nike have all had the top women confronting the President with studies they have completed on the status of women in their companies. Nike has already taken action by paying reparations to the women who were harmed and limited in promotions. But they also did something even more impactful; they fired the men who were actively preventing women from getting promoted. John Van Vleet has always said; if you want to stop gender discrimination/ sexual harassment then fire a man who does it and tell everyone you are firing him for that behavior. Nike did that!

And lastly, now we see a worldwide emphasis on the inclusion of women. Even as women continue to be
abused in corporations other women from those companies are posting the "pro woman Ads" for those same companies!

So companies have decided to position themselves in Ads, etc. to promote how "women inclusive" they are even as they continue to discriminate against their own women employees. And they are using their female employees to spread the fake facade to the public.

I suggest you not end up being one of the women used by your company to build a facade that does not reflect who your company really is. It only makes you look stupid and misogynistic.

So what's the conclusion to be drawn here? Other
then this movement has teeth and is already effecting women positively in some companies I cannot say.

Is it happening in more companies then we have ever seen in our 40 years? YES!

Does every week bring a new company to add to the list? YES! This week alone we got news that women
were revolting in the Disney Company.

Will there be more? YES!

My own personal belief is we women are sick of being harassed and overlooked for opportunities because we are women. With the publicity on the
Entertainment Women Stars who were abused we mere mortal everyday women have got to have said to ourselves "if it can happen to that woman it can happen to me". And that's just not OK.

Welcome all of you to the new world order!

Susan
