Genius Tumblr Mocks All-Male Panels
We all know how dismal “women in the workplace” stats are. Despite the fact that they hold 52 percent of all professional-level jobs, only 21 of the Fortune 500 CEOs are women. Women hold a mere 16 percent of board seats. And even less—14 percent—of executive officer positions. Things are so bad, that when you’re not leaning in, sometimes you’ve just got to laugh. Enter this hilarious Tumblr, which documents the dearth of female experts on panels, at seminars, and various events. “Congrats, you have an all-male panel!” it proclaims before stamping photos of said panel with a pic of David Hasselhoff giving a super serious thumbs up. (It’s the best workplace humor we’ve seen since Feministe’s Female Conference Speaker Bingo.) Women may have a lot of balls in the air, but when it comes to representation at industry events like these, as this Tumblr expressly points out, it’s only people with balls who get the mic.
