The president may be a good man, believing he is doing the right thing.
Nevertheless, his policy is probably doing harm to your career and the
quality of your work.

If you cannot travel with your male colleagues or even lunch with them,
you are not privy to the work-related conversations they are having. As
I'm sure you've experienced, a lot of issues are hashed out over a long
drive to a work site or over a lunch.

Also, when the person who ultimately pays the bills (the president)
decides who should travel somewhere (whether to a work site or to a
conference), it makes it more expensive to segregate the sexes. So isn't
it easier (and more cost-effective) to just send the men? This presents
another potential harm to you - kept behind on the home front, minding
the kitchen.

The president, although well-intentioned, *is* doing you harm.

My .02 worth.
