I work a lot with financial industries and in tech. Why? Because it’s male-dominated. I have entrepreneurs in my workshop who share stories about how difficult it is for women to be in a male-dominated environment and to support everyday male humour.
You can use humour in a very positive way to improve your leadership and to improve the atmosphere within your team and the culture of your company.
Why did I accept the 50inTech invitation? As a woman who built a career in male-dominated industries, I developed a masculine sense of humour and used my sense of humour to be part of the boys’ club and advance my career. In an industry where women are still a minority, support of a strong network is essential. And that is why I accepted the invitation. It is a bold and necessary initiative. And I believe women should help each other, so in the future, there will be no male or female leader just leaders without gender.
Every day I share my knowledge and experience to achieve this goal with a mission to create a million smiles in the workplace and build gender equity with humour.
