To see just how far women have come in business, see the Motif Investing infographic, Women CEOs — Myths & Messages From The Top. But myths and misperceptions aside, how are companies run by women doing in terms of the ultimate yardstick of success: rising or falling stock prices? More

The Wall Street Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Women account for a third of the nation's lawyers and doctors, a major shift from a generation ago when those professions were occupied almost exclusively by men, new Census figures show.

What business schools must do to put more women in the C-suite
The Huffington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Women represent 31 percent of the population amongst top business schools as estimated by the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), with Wharton (University of Pennsylvania)boasting the highest percentage of women in last year's incoming class at 45 percent. Yet, when we look at the percentage of women who specialize in, and ultimately pursue, careers in finance, operations, strategy, business law (versus areas such as marketing and organizational management), we continue to see a staggering underrepresentation of women. This disparity matters, as it will reduce our chances of reaching top-level positions. More

The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In the toughest global economic environment in decades, internationally adept businesspeople know that the impression they create with their personal on-the-go, global style is an important aspect of professional success. The clothes they wear, the shoes they choose, the bags and briefcases they tote — all are part of the aura of cosmopolitan competence that well-appointed executives cultivate.

Forbes    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Business 2 Community    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The critical message: women should be women, because there is power and immense value in being women. More simply, we should be ourselves every time. After all, we tell our children not to try to be someone they're not, right? So why are so many of us under the impression that we need to act like men to succeed in the business world? Why spend our work day — in essence, a huge percentage of our lifetime — trying to be someone or something that we are not? More
