Joanne P. Used to work for a large international accounting firm. "Things came to a head after the birth of my daughter," she says. "It had always been a struggle to get the interesting jobs, but when I needed to leave the office at 5 to collect my daughter, I was effectively cut out of the loop. I wasn't seen as a "team player" any more. Men who had less experience and seniority than me got the best assignments. My career was effectively over. I left the profession."Do you have a story to tell?
Virginia C. Works for a large accounting/consultancy firm. She tells a similar tale. "Men are groomed for success from the start, while women are left to fend for themselves," she says. "I was lucky - I had the support of men in the power structure. But that's unusual. The solution? We need to get men to understand that they are part of the problem!"
Judy L. Works in a multinational corporation and agrees. "We also, as a profession, need to actively market ourselves to women. We need pro-active mentoring programs, where successful women can share challenges and solutions with women new to the profession."
