Would it make the sentence sound odd? Examples: • “Women should not seek out leadership positions.” • “Men cannot do two things at the same time.”
  • 19. end of slide show ………… Q? THANK YOU
  • 20. some DOs and DON’Ts  Don’t compliment a lady’s dress or looks at office. These comments, even though expressed sincerely, are easily misunderstood in the workplace. Instead, compliment her work on a project or her positive attitude.  Don’t pull out a chair for her at the conference table. In a social setting it’s appropriate for a man to seat the woman to his right, for example, at the restaurant table. But professional women don’t expect their male associates to seat them in a business meeting or business meal.  Do hold a door, especially if her hands are full. But again, everything in business is considered ‘gender neutral. So, often a woman is okay opening the door herself if she reaches it before you do. An exception to this is if the woman is your boss. It is then appropriate for you to step quickly ahead as you approach the door to open it for her. (And, it’s proper etiquette to do the same for a male boss.)  Don’t go for a hug with her, unless you’re expressing condolences. It’s better to give a 2- handed handshake. And if you do hug, make it a side hug rather than a front hug.
