← WC Postcard Project I: Installation 6
This postcard is very reflective about how I often feel stuck within the corporate world. Until I reach a certain level no one pays attention to your ideas and opinions – mgmt will only take on projects that they know will suceed because they’re too concerned with their next promotion instead of doing what’s best for the department as a whole.
I also often feel like this when I am surrounded by others with more experience/knowledge than I possess. Recently, I’ve found that when I choose to speak my ideas are respected, now that I have more experience. I feel that women have to work particularly hard to prove their value to men and other women in educational and occupational settings.
It drives me crazy when you have a great idea that “upper management” doesn’t pay attention too, and then a few months later they are implementing something similar…and of course, they make it seem like it was all their wonderful idea.
I feel like this a lot at work, at home, and when I’m out. I don’t know if I feel this way subconsciously or if others think this too.
