Wall Street's Bro Culture
Saw the article on bloomberg and i thought it was pretty interesting as it shed life into the Wall Street's male dominated workspaces.
The article went on to state how the election has actually got some females worrying over the banter they have detected from their male counterparts in response to whether Hillary Clinton would be a good president.
In interview upon interview, a couple of core concerns emerged. They're bothered by the uptick in edgy banter they've detected from their male colleagues as Trump advanced in the campaign. And they wonder how they'll advance in their own careers if their coworkers question Clinton's fitness for the presidency because she's a woman.
Many women say discrimination, subtle or not so subtle, is a fact of life in an industry dominated by men. Indeed, they worry that talking openly about it will stifle their careers. Most of those interviewed by Bloomberg spoke on the condition they not be named, saying they feared they'd lose their jobs or be ostracized by colleagues. As one put it, gender politics is the elephant in the room: Most women want to discuss it, but few think they can.
An executive at a large hedge fund, who said she's Republican, said that hearing male colleagues disparage Clinton -- "potentially the most powerful person in the world" -- in ways they would never disparage a man made her question what they say behind her back.
