What Do Women Bring To The Table

Women often get a bad reputation for being too emotional, and as a result, the thought of them in a business setting- surrounded by men with testosteronic egos- isn’t seen as fit. However, science has made several astounding revelations about women in the workplace that many companies are still struggling to grasp.

Women Are Great Listeners, Which Helps Build Stronger Relationships.

Women are great listeners, which helps build stronger relationships. They are also more likely to be team players and less likely to be “know-it-alls.”

Women have a reputation for being collaborative and supportive. This trait is especially valuable in the workplace, where women have been shown to outperform men in certain areas.

Research shows that female leaders are more likely than male leaders to promote collaboration, encourage teamwork and support staff development. Women’s focus on collaboration is seen as an asset for companies, who can benefit from increased productivity and innovation through diversity of thought.

Women may bring other skills as well. For example, many women work in fields such as education or health care that require empathy and nurturing skills. And while these qualities may seem like they would make it harder for women to compete with men in traditionally masculine fields like engineering or computer science, studies show that empathy actually makes people better at their jobs — even in STEM fields!

Women Are the Primary Caretakers of Children, So They Have A Natural Instinct To Nurture.

Women are the primary caretakers of children, so they have a natural instinct to nurture. They often bring a softer touch to the workplace, which is important in any business. Women also tend to be more collaborative and inclusive than men, which makes them better team players.

When it comes to leadership positions, women bring a different style than their male counterparts. They’re more likely to listen rather than speak first, which can make them seem less aggressive or assertive in the eyes of their peers and subordinates. But women can be just as assertive as men when they need to be — in fact, some studies show that women who don’t take initiative during meetings tend not to receive promotions because they’re perceived as being less competent than their male counterparts who speak up more often during meetings.

Women tend to be better communicators than men because they’re often raised by single mothers who have no choice but to raise their children without any help from their fathers. This means that they’ve been forced into the role of “parent” at an earlier age than many men will ever experience — so they learn how to deal with people who need help long before most guys get anywhere near that point in their lives!

Women Are Often Left Out of Important Decisions Because They Are Deemed to Be Too Emotional.

Women are often left out of important decisions because they are deemed to be too emotional. This is an unfair stereotype and women bring so much more to the table than just emotion. Here are some of the ways that women can add value to your organization:

  • Women have a different perspective

Women have a different perspective on issues, which can open up new options that weren’t previously considered. Many times, women will bring up topics that men would never think about, such as childcare or family planning. This can help with better decision-making and improve your company culture overall.

This is especially true if you’re working with someone who has been in their position for a long time and might not be as willing to listen to new ideas from others around them. Women are great listeners and will often take the time to understand where someone else is coming from before responding. This helps make communication much easier when working with other people who may not be as willing to talk openly about some things.

Women Are Frequently Criticized for Speaking Up, Whereas Men Are Rewarded for It.

In a study from the American Psychological Association, researchers found that when women speak up in male-dominated settings, they’re labeled “aggressive” or “bossy.” But when men speak up in male-dominated settings, they’re seen as assertive and confident.

This double standard is something that women have been fighting against for decades. And while there are still plenty of people who think women should be quiet and submissive, there’s also a growing number of people who recognize that women bring unique strengths to the workplace — and if we want to get more women into leadership roles, we need to celebrate those strengths instead of criticizing them.

Women Have Been Historically Excluded from Critical Conversations, Which Leads to A Lack Of Confidence When Speaking Up.

Women have been historically excluded from critical conversations, which leads to a lack of confidence when speaking up.

In the workplace, women often feel they have to prove their worth before being accepted as part of the team and this can lead to them not speaking up as often as their male counterparts.

However, there are several ways that women can overcome this issue:

Speak up for yourself

When you don’t speak up for yourself, nobody else will do it for you. If you’re not making your needs known or asking for what you want, people will continue to take advantage of your silence. If you want something different from what’s happening around you, talk about it! If colleagues are taking credit for your work or ignoring your ideas because they think women can’t contribute, then prove them wrong by speaking up and presenting your work confidently in meetings. This will also show other women that they too can make their voices heard in the workplace.


Ultimately, the best way to preserve and protect these conferences is to embrace them as an opportunity to support our diversity, both in gender and in experience. We are fortunate enough to have such a tremendous number of diverse skillsets at our disposal, and it behooves us not to lose touch with them. Whether you’re a man or a woman at one of these conferences, we can all strive to be better partners for one another by inclusion and respect.
