Discussion Question

My company recently put in a nursing room/mother's room but

My company recently put in a nursing room/mother's room but it was designed in a way that the majority of the room is fogged glass - except one strip that runs right at sitting level that was left as transparent glass. I don't think it was done intentionally (men designed the room) but I now have to put up sheets of paper to cover the transparent strip of glass. Any idea on how to address this with my (all male) management team?

    Sounds like your management team is trying to do the right stuff but is a bit clueless. If I were you, I'd research solutions and costs associated and present to your management team with solution in hand.

    What are you wanting to achieve? You say that you have put paper up in the room. Are you wanting a permanent solution?

    How have you addressed other issues with your male management team in the past which was similar to this? If that approach worked try it again.

    Personally I think honesty is the best policy and I'd just say that it's great that they have added a nursing room and is it possible to have some 'fogged' paper put in there permanently would be great!
