March 8th: International Women's Day

We can start by treating everyone else with fairness, tolerance and respect in order to create a work environment that is comfortable for all.
For some men, this may mean slacking off on the macho jokes and gratuitous innuendos you thought made you appear virile or funny in front of your other colleagues. Times have changed, this isn't appropriate anymore, we've moved on to a time where we need consider other point of view with a lot more consideration!
