Okay, I Will Write About Women Executives, But I Hate That I Have To
by Suzanne Bates - Nov, 2011
As a woman who writes about leadership, I get invited to talk to a LOT of women's groups. It's fun, A glass of Pinot Grigio, a little conversation about Jimmy Choos, what could be better? I really really really really WANT to be part of the conversation... helping women succeed. Hey, I can still remember being the first woman to anchor a newscast (my first job). I can remember reporting from the Moscone Center when Geraldin...
Women in the Trades
by Joan Runnheim Olson - Jun, 2011
Over a decade ago, I began my journey helping females and males consider non-traditional careers. I worked for a St. Paul, MN-based non-profit helping women enter and succeed in blue collar jobs in the trades. My role was to assess women’s readiness to enter the six-week pre-apprenticeship training program and then help them find jobs once they finished. I conducted lengthy interviews to determine their level of interest...
Would You Marry Someone Who Was Unemployed?
by Barbara Safani - Jun, 2011
According to a recent survey conducted by YourTango and ForbesWomen, 75 percent of women surveyed said they would not marry someone without a job and 65 percent said they wouldn’t get married if they were the one who was unemployed. But 91 percent of single women said they would marry for love over money. Huh? Some of the other survey stats intrigued me as well including: • 55 percent of women would give up their careers t...
Should You Tell Your Boss You Are Pregnant?
by Alexandra Levit - Jun, 2011
I recently had my second child, and so lately I’ve been a bit more active on birth boards, or online discussion forums related to pregnancy, childbirth, and child rearing. One question that pops up all the time on these boards is: “should I tell my boss I am pregnant, and if so, when?” I’m not going to beat around the bush on this one. Although we’re lucky to have the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, which states that emplo...
Women don’t know their value in the marketplace
by John Crant - Jun, 2011
As a woman, it is extremely important to know your self-worth, especially in your career. Here is a great article in I recently read in Time Magazine about how women are still earning less than men, The 100% Solution. As a working mom I have to admit I took some offense to Donald Trump’s quote when asked about hiring working moms, he replied, “She’s not giving me 100%. She’s giving me 84%…” The article’s author says working...
It’s Time to Make Comparison a Thing of the Past
by Christine Hassler - Apr, 2011
March is Women’s History Month, a time to celebrate the diverse and historic accomplishments of women. It is my busiest time of the year (only five days in my own bed this entire month!) as I’m blessed to travel around the country to speak on women’s issues and empowerment. My favorite part of speaking to women is feeling the phenomenal energy that is created when we come together. Anyone who has ever been in a room where w...
20 Careers Where Women Outnumber Men
by Barbara Safani - Apr, 2011
I know that Tuesday was International Working Women’s Day, but since I think we should celebrate working women (and men!) everyday, I decided to hold off on this post so it could get some air time on one of the other 364 days of the year when women are making meaningful contributions to the world of work. According to a recent report by Forbes, there are 20 careers dominated by women. The top 5 are: 1. Registered Nurses...
Gender and Job Seekers
by Judith Lindenberger - Feb, 2011
The current economy has kept me busy doing career coaching for people who have lost their jobs. So last week, when I heard a radio segment on letters of recommendation, I listened. Researchers from Rice University analyzed over 600 letters of recommendation. The letters of recommendation for both women and men used positive words; however, traditionally feminine attributes such as “nurturing”, “kind” and “agreeable” were u...
