For so long the business world was dominated by men, while women missed out on educational and employment opportunities. But as the 20th Century progressed, women took more of a hold on the job market. Their earnings started going up, and businesses everywhere discovered that their female employees were every bit as capable as their male counterparts in a variety of roles from the top to the bottom. While there has yet to be a woman President, there have been great strides forward, and it is only a matter of time before America gives its fairer sex an opportunity at the highest post in the land. With all that women have accomplished in the last 100 years, it only stands to reason that your business consider a woman motivational speaker to address your employees, giving hope to female associates within your company while also blurring the barrier that divides the different genders within the workplace. A woman motivational speaker can bring a unique perspective to those she addresses, and can appeal to everyone at your company regardless of gender.
With a woman speaker your employees can relate to the potential obstacles that they face based simply on who they are as people. Women had to overcome a lot of stereotypes and misconceptions in order to get to where they are within the workplace. Lynette Lewis, a popular woman speaker, routinely speaks with workers on this very topic. As a PR professional, marketing expert and former senior leader of marketing for the National Women’s Initiative at Deloitte & Touche, Lewis possesses extensive knowledge in what it takes to get ahead regardless of gender. The two things that she encourages men and women to have are vision and purpose. Tapping in to these two interrelated items can help an employee or an individual set goals for themselves and achieve, both at work and at home.
Women’s leadership speakers with the background and the experience to reach out to your employees and provide them with a message of hope can greatly improve morale and quality of life for all.
