Let's talk about the gender pay gap
Forbes
Think Progress recently highlighted stats around the ongoing gender wage gap (at 22 percent overall) in nearly every kind of job. These days, public sector roles appear to have much more transparent pay structures, which has ultimately led to smaller pay gaps and greater employee empowerment to discuss rates of compensation. However, in the private sector, salaries are much less transparent, and in the recent Sony hack, some private salaries were exposed.

Why American women hate board quotas
The Washington Post
Barb Stinnett, an early computer science enthusiast, became Hewlett Packard's director of worldwide sales in 2000. She was 41 years old, a rare female executive in technology and the only woman to sit on the board of American Multiplexer Corporation, a public telecommunications firm in Silicon Valley. Stinnett was optimistic the gender ratio would eventually balance — at that table and across the country.

A definitive strategy to eliminate the gender pay gap
Inc.
$11,607. That's about how much 47 percent of the workforce loses each year in earnings because the gender wage gap persists. Women represent nearly half of the labor force in this country, and 40 percent of them work in management, professional and related jobs.

How great coaches ask, listen and empathize
Harvard Business Review
Historically, leaders achieved their position by virtue of experience on the job and in-depth knowledge. They were expected to have answers and to readily provide them when employees were unsure about what to do or how to do it. The leader was the person who knew the most, and that was the basis of their authority. Leaders today still have to understand their business thoroughly, but it's unrealistic and ill-advised to expect them to have all the answers.
