Trying to balance who I am with all male department
Working with all men isn’t a problem for me because I find it as an opportunity to bring more women into my department after proving how important diverse perspectives are. This has worked well for me a number of times... but not this time.
I love what I do and I’d say I’m generally a confident person. However, I’m finding myself getting walked over by a group of colleagues I work with. I’m losing my voice and getting walked over with my opinions. The respect I used to receive is slowly going away so my plan of making a diverse department is shattering in front of me. Has anyone been here? What are some ways to deal and turn it around?
