Women's employee resource group
What does it take to get one off the ground successfully? I am thinking of starting one at my company and would love to hear from others about how to encourage as many women at my workplace to join and how to make them engaging and interesting for members. Any ideas for events and programming would be much appreciated!
I am an undergraduate student carrying out a research on if women should be allowed to have paid menstrual leave each month. I have some queries regrading the matter and would be grateful if I could get the answers from this discussion board. The questions are 1. Is the policy feasible in real workplace? 2. Are women comfortable to tell their boss to get days off because of menstruation? 3. Would it ensure equality in the workplace? 4. What are the benefits of the policy? 5. How can such a policy be implemented? 6. what would the women do who are in irreplaceable jobs like teachers, doctors and nurses who has to be physically present in their workplace?
What have other people done if they had a long maternity leave? Should I offer to help find a replacement? Or is that crazy since that'd be like offering up my job?
OK, the previous post is a tough act to follow, but here goes: Within the next week or two, I will be laid off from the ad agency where I work. Unfortunately, this is an industry hazard; when an agency loses clients, it cuts staff. We're losing two major accounts. It's deja vu for me, because the last agency I worked at lost a huge account and laid off 11 staffers, including me. The advertising industry skews very young. I laugh when I see "senior copywriter" positions requiring three years of experience. I have more than 20 years of experience. Also, many writers focus on a niche, such as pharma, but I take pride in the diversity of my portfolio. While I prefer a permanent, full-time copywriting/content position, either remote or in the Greater Philadelphia/South Jersey region, I'm thinking about going freelance. I already have a few freelance clients, but not enough to pay the bills. Any advice on how to best position myself in the marketplace, and how to dive in to freelance writing full time would be greatly appreciated. (And feel free to hit me up with job offers!)
I have a coworker who plays this psychological warfare on me. How do I deal with her nasty attitude, and manipulating disposition?
