Is your Boss Holding you Back?
Dear First Gen,
Happy Women’s History Month! #CelebrateWomen
Working in a male-dominated profession can have its pros and cons. In the movie #HiddenFigures, one of the characters has a boss that relies on her intelligence and work ethic but refuses to let the #executiveboss know that she is behind the good ideas and math calculations of #NASA’s space missions. #KatherineJohnson speaks up for herself and is ignored. Eventually, her supervisor has a change of heart and begins to publicly give her credit. In the video, I share how I have risen in my industry with the help of supportive bosses.
Tell me: How do you handle a supervisor who limits your shine in the workplace?
(In the Rise of a First Gen, I talk about the importance of “Working Where You Thrive”.)

It is very hard for those women who are working in the male dominated profession to get credit and respect for what they have accomplished. Things were used to problematic for me but now things are really awesome.
