Film Director C. Fitz Answers: What ways can women help others succeed?
We can help other women succeed in several ways. I try and incorporate these concepts into my work:
Mentor women of any age. Now more then ever we should be aware not to overlook age discrimination. A lot of older very skilled women have been over-looked, surpassed by male counterparts yet remain extremely talented. Reach out and help your fellow female step up – they usually could use some extra push and pull.
Advocate/support and take action to help women advance. A lot of times the louder (squeaky) wheel has gotten the promotion/raise/job. Help your fellow women advocate for themselves and/or hire them!
My company, and the ones I work with, use the women helping women philosophy. Every woman-owned business needs to implement this way of thinking into their culture. Now more than ever, it’s about successful women helping advance other smart, driven women!
