Empowering multicultural women employees to excel at work
Burnout costs the Australian economy $14 billion dollars annually. It costs companies 15-20% of their payroll to cover voluntary turnover costs.
Women are more likely to experience burnout than men, with 43% of women affected compared to 31% of men. Almost 40% of women leave their careers and leadership positions within two years due to burnout.
Other effects of burnout are career stagnation, psychological consequences such as depression and anxiety, impaired leadership effectiveness, and a 35% increase in mortality.
Women from minority groups are more vulnerable to burnout due to several factors that include, but are not limited to:
A lack of belonging
Fatigue from feeling different all the time (researchers refer to this as 'emotional tax')
Overworking to be seen, acknowledged and accepted
Feeling overwhelmed knowing they are an unofficial cultural ambassador - their every action carries the potential to be interpreted as a reflection of their entire culture
Working in systems and structures designed for others
Dealing with implicit discrimination and unfavourable working conditions
Balancing expectations placed upon them to preserve cultural customs and norms while also pursuing their own professional ambitions - requiring a delicate dance between tradition and ambition
Culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) women and adult daughters of immigrants and refugees in the workplace are particularly impacted by burnout, yet the least addressed.
That’s where we come in.
