      Women in America: Work and Life Well-Lived

      How to create a workplace culture that attracts, engages and retains a gender-diverse workforce.

      How can businesses create the ideal work culture for female employees?

      In the U.S., more than 5 million jobs are available. But women continue to drop out of the workforce in troubling numbers. Far less than half of female employees (35%) are engaged in their jobs, and nearly half of women say they are looking for or considering new jobs.

      Organizations have to create cultures that enable women to maximize their full potential in and out of the workplace. Organizations that continue to enforce outdated policies will not be able to keep up with employers who offer more choice and flexibility and greater trust and transparency.

      To attract, retain and engage a modern workforce, business leaders must be courageous and begin to examine, if not overhaul, their organizational policies, strategies, cultures and values.

      48%
      OF FEMALE EMPLOYEES SAY THEY ARE ACTIVELY LOOKING FOR A DIFFERENT JOB OR WATCHING FOR NEW OPPORTUNITIES

      60%
      OF WOMEN RATE GREATER WORK-LIFE BALANCE AND BETTER PERSONAL WELL-BEING AS A "VERY IMPORTANT" ATTRIBUTE IN A NEW JOB

      54%
      OF EMPLOYED WOMEN WITH A CHILD UNDER THE AGE OF 18 WOULD PREFER TO STAY AT HOME AND TAKE CARE OF THE HOUSE AND FAMILY

      45%
      OF WOMEN SAY THEY WOULD LIKE TO BECOME CEO OR HAVE A POSITION IN SENIOR MANAGEMENT OR LEADERSHIP

      TOO MANY U.S. ORGANIZATIONS CONTINUE TO FOLLOW POLICIES CREATED IN THE 1990S, IF NOT THE 1950S -- OR THEY CHANGE THEIR POLICIES BUT NOT THEIR CULTURE.


      Women in America: Work and Life Well-Lived delivers an in-depth perspective on what an ideal work culture for women looks like and what organizations can do to achieve that culture.

      Finally getting round to selling my Pokémon and Yu-Gi-Oh cards. Far too many. Oh and a bit of Warhammer as well, hopefully I'll make enough to purchase a new pew.

    • JG MP5 SD6, it's that kind of thing when a 16 year old thinks it's good to get any cheap gun to learn on but not when to get to the gearbox you'd have to disassemble every single part of the external build to get to the gearbox, then you'd have to reroute the tamiya connection around the whole body of the gun and under hop up whilst placing the hop and gearbox in at the same time. The motor wire's are just as annoying to put in. Getting to the gearbox took 40 minutes the first time.   After 30 hours later and a video I made to disassemble the gun (for the 6th time) it finally works, m120 with 2 teeth short stroked on sector and piston with a 13:1 gear set and a "high torque" motor which was a 16 tpa motor so speed one running with a 7.4v and around 280 fps on a .25. Correct motor height, correct shimming, perfect air seal and new hop rubber thanks to Foreign Commando Remi with the addition of Teflon taping the crap out of the hop, it finally works and sounds amazing and I never want to open it again but there is one problem, the top where a claw mount needs to go, it's a bit open but I can push it together but it won't stay together so I'd need a claw mount soon
    • I was there in a Hawaiian shirt. You might have seen me. Might be there on the 14th, too. 
    • If you're anything like me, get the AEG you want first time because if you compromise you'll just want it again later.  If you want an MG42, get that MG42; it's a cool looking toy.   With regards to play style, @Rogerborg's right, slap a box magazine on anything and you're a support gunner in airsoft. That said, if you have a large AEG that's obviously meant to look like an LMG I find people treat you differently. Running my M249 Mk2 I get people asking me for cover fire, moving up when I'm covering. I've also been given permission to be the only auto guy in a semi auto game which people seemed to enjoy on both sides as it added some extra flavour. For this reason, I wouldn't go for a Stoner or Para as they're easily mistaken for ARs. Bet you wouldn't get that problem with the MG42 though!
