Ladies America announces 2015 'Women Leading the Future' Conference
Ladies America
"Women Leading the Future" is a daylong conference hosted by Ladies America set for Saturday, June 27, 2015 in Washington, D.C. This coming year marks the fifth anniversary of the conference, which typically includes upwards of 20-30 dynamic speakers and panelists of leading women (and men) in business, government, healthcare, journalism, law, military, finance, technology and more. In previous years, Ladies America has collaborated with Microsoft, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Center for Women in Business, the U.S.O. and the United Nations Foundation. In 2015, Ladies America is proud to partner with Million Women Mentors, with an overall (and wonderfully important) theme of mentorship.

To retain female talent, create a purpose-driven organization
The Huffington Post
Organizations around the country are hemorrhaging talent because women are leaving the American workforce to start their own businesses. Looking at the statistics, it's easy to understand why. Here are the hard facts: 21 percent of C-suite executives are women. This is a drastic improvement since the 1950s, but still not very inspiring. Less inspiring still is the fact that women are currently paid, on average, only three-quarters of what their male colleagues make.

8 inspiring habits of truly remarkable bosses
Inc.
Conventional wisdom — and a bunch of research — says people don't quit their companies; they quit their bosses. Of course that means the opposite must also be true: people who love their bosses should stay at that company even if they could find (within reason) better pay and benefits somewhere else. So how can you be a boss everyone wants to work for?

Is your business prepared for virtual currency?
By Jessica Taylor
We've seen such innovation and creation from the virtual currency revolution that started back in 2009 with bitcoin, but we didn't think it would actually affect us in today's world. Many consumers thought bitcoin was a scam, just pretend money — until it began to be accepted as actual currency. A new report from Technology Strategies International, Inc., states that virtual currencies are expected to disrupt major markets in the next five years. If your business doesn't know how to handle virtual currency, it may be time to learn.

Fast Company
If you don't have your dreams and goals mapped out, you'll never achieve them.

Women at work: A guide for men
The Wall Street Journal
We are flooded with career-advice books for women, Joanne Lipman writes. There are women's networking groups and leadership conferences galore. But they're all geared toward women, consumed primarily by women and discussed among women. I am convinced that women don't need more advice. Men do.

1 woman's unlikely path to a $100 million company
Fortune
Joanna Weidenmiller had severe dyslexia and no athletic ability as a child ("If you threw a ball at me I could never catch it," she laughs). So much for expectations: She became a nationally ranked rower with a 4.0 GPA at the University of Virginia. And now, at age 32, she heads up a San Francisco-based recruiting technology company, 1-Page, that last month went public — not on the NASDAQ, but instead on the Australian Stock Exchange. It was the first Silicon Valley company to list on the nascent exchange.

Debunking myths about women-led businesses
Forbes
Renee Smith writes: "You've come a long way, Baby," was the '70s ad slogan mirroring the feminist movement of the time, and with the 2014 Chanel Campaign applauding the modern feminist, I can't help but ask, have we really? No one disputes that women's issues have improved, but have these improvements translated to our local businesses and pocketbooks?
