    It would be good to cover intersectional discrimination, subconscious marginalisation, and the nature of privilege.

    Being a woman in leadership can have challenges. These challenges are amplified where a woman is a butch lesbian, transgender, from a racial or religious minority, juggling family commitments, from a different social class, with a visible disability, or approaching retirement age.

    Though I frequently do not notice race, and I actively speak out about racism, I still find my subconscious bias affected by racist assumptions. I recognise that when it happens, and consciously adjust for it, but very sadly, it’s still there.

    The typical corporate approach from last century, is to assume that staff from minorities entail greater risks. This article talks about how women in leadership measurably improve corporate diversity (at least in the LGBT inclusion arena), seeing staff from minority backgrounds as an opportunity for the organisation.

    “Whatever the reason, the effect that women have on corporate LGBT policy is almost certainly good for business. As Cook and Glass wrote in their study, there is ‘mounting empirical evidence’ to suggest that LGBT-friendly companies perform better, are more competitive and have happier, more productive employees.”

      Thanks for taking the time to comment Naomi and for the article. I agree with what you say and what you have suggested fits in with the section I have on why women in leadership is important. I hadn’t considered including this perspective in this course and thank you so much for bringing it to my attention here.
