In the recently released Barbie movie, an unexpected gem emerges a narrative that mirrors real-world issues many of us encounter daily. Amid the vibrant world of animation, the film cleverly addresses pertinent topics such as covering, power disparities, shaming, sexism, microaggressions, imposter syndrome, hierarchies, and cliques.
Interestingly, the challenges depicted in the movie closely mirror those experienced in workplace environments. Just like in the film, professionals often grapple with these issues knowingly or unknowingly. Here’s where Emtrain comes into play. Our comprehensive solutions empower organizations to navigate these complexities. By measuring behaviors and providing skill-building tools, we enable a shift toward a more inclusive, respectful, and dynamic workplace.
The Barbie movie’s insightful portrayal of these issues serves as a reminder of their omnipresence and the need to address them head-on. Its message runs deep and hits the core of our women community which is often underrepresented and misunderstood. The constant need that women and marginalized individuals have to prove again, that they’re worthy and good enough to get promoted, lead a large project, be an executive or a board member, and the list goes on.
Emtrain’s commitment to fostering positive workplace cultures, where biases and harmful behaviors are replaced with respect and collaboration, makes us the ideal partner. Just as the film encourages growth, learning, and empathy, our solutions empower individuals and organizations to create lasting change.
People leaders and changemakers have collectively made progress toward equality, whether in a small workplace or a larger community. It’s imperative to teach employees the skills to be inclusive, to mitigate biases from decision-making and promotions, and to learn to lead with curiosity and empathy, not assumptions based on stereotypes.
If you haven’t had the opportunity to see the movie yet, we won’t spoil it for you but, be prepared to laugh, possibly tear up, get angry, and feel empowered all in the same journey. Its gamut of emotions resonates across generations and life experiences; no matter where you are, you’ll likely find a relatable aspect. Just as the movie sparks emotions, let Emtrain be the catalyst for transforming your workplace into a space where everyone thrives.
