With all the advances women have made recently towards building workplace equality, some men have been complaining that women get all the attention. They even claim that they’re being discriminated against because they are men. This comes from their culture of entitlement at work.
Understanding the Male Culture of Entitlement
Male entitlement in the workplace lets them feel like they can pursue any woman they want under any circumstances. They think they can say whatever they want, whenever they want. They feel it’s their male privilege to make sexual comments and unwanted advances towards their colleagues and subordinates. Now that they can’t do that anymore, they try to play the victim. They blame everyone else for their problems instead of looking within and admitting the part they played.
They feel like the feminist movement has taken their privileges away. Well, no one has the right to act like a bully and an idiot. Companies have cracked down on sexual harassment because it’s costing them millions. A widespread male culture of entitlement at work has led to many cases where dozens of women reported harassment and HR did nothing, leading to huge fines being levied against the company.
Building Workplace Equality at Work
Building workplace equality is just good business. Gender equality, which supports the leadership qualities of both sexes, is the wave of the future. The male culture of entitlement at work is going the way of the dinosaur.
Watch my video below where I discuss if workplaces are still equal or if there’s a need to start a movement for men because there’s so much for women that they don’t get anything.
Equality at work means just that – women and men are equal, with neither sex dominating the other. Building workplace equality requires that every person of goodwill needs to pull up their socks and adapt. The world – and the market – is changing so rapidly nowadays that we need great leadership wherever we can find it.
