Fight for Gender Equality”

Mike Kaufmann is chief
financial officer of Cardinal Health. He has a primary responsibility for all
of the financial activities of Cardinal Health, including external reporting,
investor relations, tax strategy/planning, and capital deployment.  He leads the women’s networking group at
Cardinal Health because he says that men need to be interested in change. He encouraged
men to be part of the women’s networking group. For Cardinal Health, earning a spot on
the NAFE top company list for executive women for five consecutive years is a
reflection of the company’s focus on maintaining a diverse and inclusive
workplace.

Catalyst’s initiative for
understanding women’s challenges in the workplace has educated some male middle
and top managers to be more considerate of a woman’s obstacles.  To understand the “unconscious bias” that
influence important workplace decisions. We live in a male dominant society so
many times women are overlooked. Many times male dominant jobs may feel that male
employees can work late hours because females most of the time has to meet
family needs. So, now that we live in a different age and time male managers
now have learned to expand women’s prospects by creating partnerships between
men and women.

Racial and gender diversity were
both found to contribute positively to sales, customers and profits. Racial
diversity positively influences market share, although the impact of gender on
market share was not significant. Companies increase their creativity by
encouraging diverse opinions and perspectives. Company recruiters can also
widen the talent pool if they recruit employees based on relevant
qualifications and experience, rather than limiting their search based on race,
gender, and age.

Though employing a diverse
workforce has many advantages, it has it’s  disadvantages as well. A corporation that employs
a diverse workforce has to produce a culture that encourages dignity and
respect. This is done to avoid tension between employees. If employees’ first
language is not English communication may be adversely affected. Occasionally existing
employees may leave the organization if their personal prejudices prevent them
from working with colleagues from a different background
