Earlier this month in my ezine, I wrote about a recent conversation with 4 young women worried about the way they are treated by the more senior women in their various offices.
Although it appears that each of the four knows how to sustain strong friendships with other women, each believes that she is treated badly, or at least not supported, by older female colleagues. In other words, the women not only say that are they not being mentored, but they believe that their careers may be blocked by other women.
This ezine has sparked a lot of conversation. My younger friends seem to be not surprised by this phenomenon. But women closer to my age are more likely to be saddened and shocked – we have come a long way by supporting each other in the workplace.
I’d be interested to hear your thoughts.
