At the beginning of 2019, I started making a sincere effort to stop apologizing unnecessarily in my emails ("Sorry for the delay in response" or "Sorry, can you please send the attachment" etc.). As women we were often brought up believing that being pleasing to people and not inconveniencing is paramount to being a lady. I am SO glad that there has been a shift in thinking regarding this. Times have changed! In my own practice, I have felt that there is a strength and freedom that comes with taking pause and reformatting language to reflect that there is no fault to possess, therefore there is no fault take on. Some good examples of language revision are in the image provided here. I hope this helps to encourage a shift in language and thinking for women in the workplace.
