Tips for Being a Woman in the Workplace, as told by RBG

By: Kathryn Rainville

Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Notorious RBG. Brooklyn girl. Supreme Court Justice.

Throughout her career, Ginsberg has demonstrated several key lessons that women should consider in their own careers. In fact, in the two articles that this post is based on, several of the rules overlapped. Below are my favorites, with a little explanation of why.

  1. “One foot in front of the other”/”Take a deep breath”

Often, we become preoccupied with success, advancement, etc. While these things are important, they can be wearing. One author reminds us: “Don’t let temper confuse your goals.” Ruth Bader Ginsberg showed us that you must find your own way in and being deliberate in your actions will chip away at injustices one step, one breath, one act at a time. After all, she didn’t become one of the most prolific champions of women’s rights and gender equality overnight. Instead, she “[chipped] slowly at the big mountain of making women equal in the eyes of the law” with each strategic choice she made for the cases she took.

  1. “Find your own way in”/”Do not reward bad behavior”

The Weinstein Clause

By: Kathryn Rainville

Since the dawn of the “#MeToo” movement last year, several institutions have launched investigations, further investigated equality, and promoted the need to bring social injustices in the workplace to light. Wall Street is the latest to join the movement and make a statement.

In a recent article from Fortune, it appears that Wall Street mergers will now include what is being called “the Weinstein Clause.” According to Gregory Bedrosian, chief executive officer of the investment bank Drake Star Partners, “social due diligence is becoming more and more important, and particularly for founder-centric businesses, money is being put aside to address #MeToo issues.” Therefore, the clause will require the company to “…legally vouch for the positive behavior of a company’s leadership.” In fact, the clause will go in so far as to make the sellers “…state that nobody has accused any member of their management or leadership of sexual misconduct.”

This stipulation comes as “more than 400 high-profile executives and employees” have been taken down by the #MeToo movement. At this point, there is no excuse for companies to not be held more responsible. This is Wall Street’s attempt to affect change on a corporate level, as well … Read more and comment
