The Sisterhood code

November 20, 2017


This blog may be controversial - or you may have more to add. If you do, come and join the discussion in our Facebook group The Career Mum 


Over the last twenty years of my career, 90% of women have been supportive. However when you come across one that isn’t, I’m doubly offended. So, here are my thoughts on the sisterhood code in business:

  • Champion the women in your network, help them celebrate their successes, recognise them and help to share their news. 

  • Never EVER claim someone else’s work as your own. You will eventually get caught out. 

  • If someone helps you out, don’t always take - consider how you can give back.

  • Also - pay it forward. If you’ve had a helping hand, help the next person.....

  • Don’t forget to give people opportunities to shine, especially if you have exposure that they may not. Share it around. 

  • Have empathy -if people are behaving out of character, talk to them, try to understand what’s going on and try to help them.  


What have I missed? I would love to hear your thoughts. 


Thanks for reading.
