Overview: Women leaders are stepping away from companies and high-visibility roles at an alarming rate. Many face glass ceilings that prohibit advancement or experience belittling microaggressions, such as having their judgment questioned or being mistaken for someone more junior. Diverse employees are doing more to support employee well-being and foster inclusion, but this critical work is spreading them thin and going primarily unrewarded. nnJoin Joanie Kraut from Women in Games International (WIGI), Angela Roseboro formerly of Riot, and JC Lau from Probably Monsters to explore why it has become increasingly important for women leaders to work for companies that prioritize flexibility, employee well-being, and DEI initiatives.
