"Know that things will be harder for you. Its not equitable and not everyone cares to fix this or address. Oftentimes you will suffer on your own. There is a culture of avoidance. "

"No"
One thing United States Department of State can improve?
"Be more results-oriented and less bureaucratic. Be open to new, innovative ideas instead of depending on a faulty hierarchical leadership that seeks to only maintain the status quo. Psychological safety, or the ability of all members of the team to contribute their ideas, is lacking. This is especially problematic for people of color and women,"

"The DOS still has a culture of working long hours and having the job, not your family, be the priority. It is incredibly difficult, even as a single woman, to work the hours required to be considered a good employee."

"Life overseas can be very lonely for women who do not have a family or partner with them. Not only is embassy work tough and long hours (and often teeming with gender bias), local culture in other countries is often hostile to solo women, or much more sexist than in the U.S."
