Love this @Belinda_Booker! I saw it on Linkedin too. I think its perfectly timed along with so many discussions about inappropriate treatment of women and men in the workplace. Whilst ditching this would unfortunately make many "promo girls" unemployed, it also sets a new and much needed premise for women - that your job isn't to just stand there and look good, you're more valuable than that.
The line is hard to define as many talent women can add value to events whilst, in some ways, standing in a costume and looking good. So I definitely agree with your point Melissa:
The important thing for me is to always ask; are we hiring and using people to their full and best potential? Progress doesn't come from underestimating and undervaluing anyone.
