Confront an all-male board as a female manager

You are a female manager in your company and want to convince the board members to go a different route for the latest project due to many inconveniences you’ve found. The board consists of 5 male members.

When you look around, you are in a boardroom where the members are waiting for the meeting to start. Your male coworker is there as well, whose plan was initially accepted regardless of its flaws.

He constantly interrupts you by mocking your suggestions and gets laughing support from all board members. If you don’t convince the board about your idea, your coworker gets promoted.

At the end of this training, you should understand what it would be like to be in a female’s shoes, to get empathy for diversity and a reflection of a board member’s or male behavior.
