DIGITAL WOMAN Fights For “Zero Tolerance” In Organisations Rife With Gender Bias

1 BEST SELLING AUTHOR OF DIGITAL WOMAN BOOK ELISHA BOOTH

 

Senior female in tech and #1 Best Selling Author, DIGITAL WOMAN, Elisha Booth is calling on organisations to collaborate together to develop a best in class universal “women in tech and leadership digital program” adapted by all.

 

(YourDigitalWall Editorial):- Sydney, New South Wales Oct 24, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – ELISHA BOOTH Amazon’s latest #1 Best Selling Author of DIGITAL WOMAN and Chief Executive Officer of EB Digital and ELISHABOOTH.COM announced: “Women have had enough of the persistent gender bias in the workplace;  It’s ridiculous to think that organisations believe ticking boxes or winning awards is enough to convince or attract women, yet on the floor, they can see no real change.”

Booth explains “it comes as no surprise women (and girls) in tech and leadership continue to struggle to navigate the chronic gender biases in the workplace.  Organisations must work together and carve out clearer career pathways for girls (from school and university level) to proactively tackle the issue of gender biases and discrimination in the workplace.”

Booth claims gender bias starts at home from a young age; “It is no longer acceptable for society to continue to portray and applaud boys for being assertive and strong while they deem girls as ‘bossy’ for the same behaviour.  This has negative implications for both males and females as adults, especially in the workplace where unconscious gender bias runs rife.”

Booth says she has had enough of seeing firsthand how organisations simply tick some anti-gender bias boxes yet are really doing nothing of substance that can be measured by impact.

“Most women must work x10 times harder than men to be successful in the workplace.  They also struggle with Work-Life Balance because of it.  This has been further compounded by COVID-19.  Women need to be strong and stop complaining and start participating in the gender parity movement; men women and girls need to work together for the greater good

However, Booth is clear it is not a case of men against women like some of the women’s groups around, it’s about everyone working together for the greater good!

To demonstrate her pledge to universally facilitate women-in-tech and leadership programs Booth aims to develop a data drive digital collaboration with organisations, and senior females in tech, education, and digital.  This will combat the issue of gender bias and discrimination against women and girls.

Booth’s #1 Best Selling Book DIGITAL WOMAN is the first step to opening the door to eliminating gender bias and financial independence for women by means of a global collaboration to eradicate gender bias for good.

Booth’s official book launch is online on LinkedIn 25th October 1230pm and the physical launch at QT Hotel in Sydney from 6pm on 26th October
