We automatically assume things about people born and raised in certain cities, countries, regions, etc. We judge people by how they look or present themselves to the world. We don’t do it on purpose, but we are all guilty of some sort of bias and judgment. Imagine if you unknowingly carry these thoughts into the workplace.

In honor of Father’s Day, and as I depart on my latest professional excursion—this time to Japan—to advise (mostly male) executives on the advancement of women leaders, I have been reflecting on being raised by a single father, and how this unique aspect of my personal story has impacted my style as a woman leader and my approach to my profession.
