Lindsey Mask: Ask them their goals
The Huffington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Leaders — in business, philanthropy and politics — should forge on as visionaries, but my suggestion is we all also stop to ask the goals of others. Let us ask our children, friends, clients, board members, colleagues and constituents — "What are your goals?" There is great risk in asking that question because it may also reveal the truth. People are not always prepared for the raw truth that can come from asking others opinions or in this case — what they really aim to achieve. More

The United Nations remains one of the strongest forces for ensuring that women participate to their full potential in the socio-political, economic and cultural fabric of their societies. The U.N. Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women, or as it is creatively known, U.N. Women, is the global institution that consolidates the systemic efforts for achieving a full range of women's rights. Alongside, Grabar-Kitarovic has highlighted that women's rights are an articulation of NATO's own set of core value set, itself focused around democratic ideals. More

Why did women do so well in 2012? Because gender bias is declining
The Washington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Why did women, most of whom were Democrats, do well in 2012? Observers have offered numerous explanations, including controversial comments about rape and abortion by "self-immolating" Republican candidates, an election-year focus on women's health issues, redistricting, or a favorable electoral environment for the Democratic Party. But here's another: gender bias — either by the media or the voters — is no longer the impediment to female candidates that it once was. More

Advice for women lawyers
The Huffington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Succeeding as a female lawyer is not easy, and I know all about it. As a former law partner — but also a former part-time associate, public servant and counsel —Susan Smith Blakely knows the trade-offs that are necessary for women/mothers/caretakers to succeed in our profession. Even with the advancement on women's issues and today's protections against discrimination in the workplace, women continue to be the ones who have the babies and take the greatest roles in the caretaking of their families. That creates an uneven playing field, but it also creates opportunities for choices that can improve our personal and professional lives. More
