Ladies America unveils Mentorship Pilot Program for young, professional women
Ladies America
Ladies America unveils its Mentorship Pilot Program for young, professional women with a soft launch in its flagship city of Washington, D.C. The program has been underdevelopment for the past year under the guidance of Yanire Braña, Jean Schindler, Juliana Hess & others who have crafted a robust program aimed at helping professional women advance and meet achievable, tangible goals for their life and careers.

Mentorship is a core tenant of Ladies America and a project of Ladies International Foundation, 501c3 status pending with education in technology, advocacy and business. Today's soft launch and introduction to the national Mentorship Pilot Program falls on the heels of Ladies America's annual women's conference, "Women Leading the Future," which was held at Microsoft on June 15, 2013.

"Reaching today's soft launch of Ladies America's mentorship pilot program has been a true labor of love for our dedicated teams in New York City and Washington, D.C., who have brought to our program years experience and best practices from other such initiatives in Latin America and other urban areas of the United States," said Lindsey Mask, founder and executive director of Ladies America. "There is a focus on building truly functioning relationship, identifying areas of need, training mentors, monitoring success and offering one-on-one or group mentorship programs. For groups, there will be specific themes, such as negotiation, starting a career in D.C., and entrepreneurship. This is a very exciting time for Ladies America, and we are looking forward to seeing the results that come from this pilot."

Mentorship pilot program applications and assignments of mentors will occur through August/ September, with the program mechanics beginning in late September/early October and running through late March 2014.

And they are more likely to graduate from high school, receive post-graduate degrees, and earn more money.

Is the gender magnet pulling you backwards?
The Guardian
It's a feeling most businesswomen will be familiar with — the frustration and disappointment you feel when attending a corporate event and it seems only "natural" that you socialize with the wives of your peers. Some may have careers themselves but many do not. Whatever the case, corporate events are a big part of the business world and connecting with other businesspeople is generally the priority for women in attendance. Yet despite this, we are still grouped by gender around cocktails and even the dinner table, and introduced to people's wives over drinks.

Businesses that can figure out how to be likeable, even when facing challenging times, will win. But is the same true of people in business — specifically, women? It's almost as if you are a woman in business who considers herself "likeable," (or wants to be) you are an anti-feminist and don't understand the plight of our gender today. Women in business shouldn't feel bad about wanting to be liked. Success and likeability aren't mutually exclusive — you can (and should) strive for both.

Exclusive whitepaper: Amazon's local strategy
MultiBriefs Staff Writers
With its sights set on a profitable 2011 holiday season, online retail giant Amazon made a bold decision. Having millions of customers armed with smartphones and Amazon’s barcode-scanning feature, it chose to offer customers 5 percent off purchases if they went into a local store, scanned items for price and then went home empty-handed — retailers be damned. Thus began showrooming. And as Amazon captures local store data only to encourage consumers to buy online, it does so at the expense of the local retailer.
