Certainty, Safety & Travel: Supporting Women at Work | A Conversation with Staci Martin
Each of us has a basic human need for certainty – “the need for security, stability and reliability” – and safety is a very important component of that. If I don’t feel safe at home, in my community or (as we’re focusing on today) at work, it’s very hard to feel like you can truly thrive.
In this episode, Amanda and Mark sit down with Staci Martin – agribusiness professional and owner of Martin+Co – to talk about employee safety and, in particular, safety for women in business. Whether you’re a man or woman, this conversation sheds light on an important topic that affects us all. Amanda, Mark and Staci dig into:
- Why organizations, leaders and employees may not be initiating conversations about female safety in the workplace
- Experiences Staci, Mark and Amanda have had that opened their eyes to the importance of talking about safety for women
- Practical approaches to staying safe while traveling or being out on the road
- How male leaders can initiate a conversation about this topic or support their female employees most effectively
Plus much more!
This is one of the most important topics we’ve talked about so far on this show and one we hope everyone can spend a little more time thinking about as it relates to your organization or team.
