Change is difficult, and it's important that organizations give their employees resources and support during a leadership transition. Which is why the city of Austin, Texas invited experts from as far away as Florida to help city employees deal with women. Wait, what?
As the Austin American-Statesman reports, the newly elected Austin City Council is majority women for the first time in its history (seven women and four men including the mayor). To help city employees who interact with the council function in the new world order, the city manager's office offered a two-hour training in March on how to talk business with women.
