I was asked a question recently in casual conversation and my answer was apparently not what the questioner expected. The topic was the formation of a group in our industry focused on “women’s” issues. I’m not a fan of such segmentation in business.
The road to equality has been a long and ongoing one. Subsets have long yearned to be considered part of the larger group, whether the distinctions are based on gender, ethnicity or something else. Why now at this late stage in our history do we want to separate out groups which have otherwise become amalgamated?
