Building up the women around us sounds easy, it sounds good, and we all think we’re working toward it. Unfortunately, it’s not the case when you look at the data and issues surrounding this topic. It’s a huge barrier that has a negative impact on the professional advancement of our careers.

It’s time to stop the Queen Bee mentality and focus on collaboration and be intentional on elevating women and focus on collaboration.
