The Importance of Mentorship: Is Overlegislation Leaving Women Behind in the U.S.?

Understanding the Damage

Overlegislation’s Impact on Mentorship

  • Male leaders, concerned with incorrectly being accused, have reduced time expanding relationships, especially with closed-door discussions with female team members. This has caused females to potentially miss opportunities for mentorship, networking, and advice.
  • H.R. functions began implementing policies that, while aimed to protect vulnerable populations, eliminated vital prospects for females to prosper. Then, the course was set. Disrupting the dynamic of an ecosystem (positive or negative) brings consequences we often can’t see at first glance. While there’s a very real responsibility to protect employees, protection almost always comes at a cost, intentional or not.
  • Have we invited known contrarians to the dialog to elevate better discussions around the long-arranged consequences of the decision?
  • Are we spending enough time and thinking about the long-term impact on a policy or piece of legislation?
  • Are we really able to bring in individuals who, by design, will be contrarian to the policies these are set against?
  • Are we prepared to review the policy after a period of time to see if the policy has introduced unintended consequences?
