Are women in the workplace leaving men behind?
The Huffington Post
Every study indicates millennial males are an evolved model of masculinity: kinder, more accepting, not intimidated by dirty diapers, comfortable sharing power with a new generation of high-achieving females. But how well do we really know them — particularly in the workplace? The new generation of women at work has been peeled, prodded and parsed from every angle — their education, their numbers, their issues, their needs, their frustrations. But you would be hard-pressed to find one illuminating equivalent study on the male side of the gender divide.

Why are so few women on the business side of tech companies?
Chicago Tribune
The conventional explanation for why there are so few women in high tech has hinged on a simple statistic: Only about 18 percent of computer science and engineering degrees go to women every year. Yet tech companies have experts in finance, marketing, sales — not just programming. And women account for nearly 40 percent of all MBA graduates. Moreover, many financial services companies hire equal numbers of men and women at the entry level.

How young women are changing the workplace
World Economic Forum
Millennials — loosely defined as those born between 1980 and 1995 — think and work differently. To be competitive, now and particularly in the future, organizations will need to create a culture and work environment that attracts and retains a new generation of workers. This is especially true as organizations work to attract, retain and promote women, who should one day occupy a higher number of senior positions.

Why do women prefer male bosses?
By Caitlin Harrison
If you asked workers six decades ago if they had a preference on their boss's gender, most would tell you they wanted a man. Maybe not surprisingly, that's still true today, even though the statistics have improved some. Yet a recent Gallup poll shows a preference for a male leader is even higher among women than men. Of the 1,032 American adults surveyed, 39 percent of women said they wanted a male boss, while only 26 percent of men said so. It begs the question: Why do so many women have a problem with a boss of the same gender?

5 reasons why online entrepreneurs need to look beyond the numbers
Entrepreneur
When you start your entrepreneurial journey, you naturally want to build your numbers. Whether it's your social media presence, your email list or just overall visibility, you associate a larger number with growth. Larger numbers, however, aren't as important as you may believe. Just because an entrepreneur has large numbers online doesn't mean it has translated into income for their business.

When women bully women at work
New York Daily News
I have had my share of egomaniacal male bosses, but I also know how female fury can strike, Katrin Park writes. Some years ago, I was working for the director of a UN agency — when an email landed in my boss' inbox: "I just hate that Katrin Park." It was, ironically, from a gender adviser, who didn't know I managed my boss' email. The hostility was shocking. My boss wasn't exactly invested in empowering her staff, either.

Australian Broadcasting Corporation
Two court cases could radically change life for women in Japan, giving legal support for greater equality in the workplace.

5 things people reading your resume wish you knew
Forbes
Resumes are very personal documents. In fact, whenever I'm reviewing a resume, I always ask permission before I mark it up, Lily Zhang writes. Who am I to edit your life's work? That said, I can almost guarantee you that the way your career counselor handles your resume is not the way it will be handled once you submit your job applications. After speaking with many, many recruiters, here are some hard truths I've learned.
