Correspondingly, the promotional discrimination also, to an extent, contribute to the gender wage gap that is evident in the MENA region (Avis, 2017). Unfair compensation is one ofthe big problems facing women in the workplace across the world. In essence, women earn less pay as compared to their male colleagues for working similar hours (Avis, 2017). I believe that ifa female employee feels that they are underpaid as compared to their male colleagues for doing the same or comparable amount of work, there is a need for them to be bold enough to approach their manager to address such issues. So, every organization that values their workforce need to develop fairness and discrimination policies to help address such issues whenever they arise. Further, managers need to guarantee all the employee fair treatment.
CRITICAL THINKING 4Furthermore, the “glass ceiling” form of discrimination has also kept women from advancing into specific job positions as well as particular work environments, especially those that are traditionally deemed as male-dominated (Stamarski & Son Hing, 2015). Thus, there are avariety of ways through which ladies are stereotyped in the workplace. For example, ladies are viewed as lower-grade workers, unlike their male partners. Let’s take the case of the medical field. Women are often stereotyped as lower-end health workers or as only being nurses and not physicians. Therefore, this situation explains where there is a huge disparity in terms of the percentage of males and females practicing in more advanced medical fields. So, the same way that women are under-represented in higher positions in the medical field, this reflects the situation in a substantial number of professions.
