Elizabeth Dell recently wrote a blog discussing women entrepreneurs and their quest for an equal platform. It's a compelling piece and one that all women in the workforce can relate to, even if you don't own a business. Sure, this topic may be quite tiresome for some, but it may resonate with most. Why isn't the playing field equal, just and open for all? Why do women have to continually jump hoops to show that we can run circles around many? Why do we have to beat our chests and swing from the rooftops to be heard and noticed? Or, maybe we are viewing it differently? Is it unjust? Is it equal and we are too busy trying to prove our self-worth that we are now too sensitive?
According to Elizabeth, "If women and men participated equally in the entrepreneurial ecosystem, the United States’ GDP could rise by $30 billion." That's a staggering statistic. And one that deserves attention.
