Sexism and inappropriate behavior of managers have created a toxic environment for women. Even when escalated to HR, nothing will change as HR only tries for the person who made the claim to go away. The advice from HR consisted of finding a new job. An outreach to the Women in Tech initiative for help was ignored as it appears this initiative is only about the photo ops.

At the 2016 global sales organization meeting, messaging was all about "you are the best-of-the-best" and that LinkedIn would not be successful without the individual job you do. Top performers were highlighted in front of thousands of employees. As the employee came to the stage to receive their well deserved award, videos of colleagues commending them were shown. Interspersed among work-centric kudos, the awardee's parents were shown in the videos congratulating their child and stating how proud they were of them.
