Hey girl, are you a new grad? Consider owning your own business. Women have gained in the controlling share of the current “spend”, racking up over 3 trillion dollars in revenues through women-owned business in the last year.

How Millennial Women Are Shaping Our Future
by Lindsey Pollak - Oct, 2010
It's not easy for twentysomething women these days. Every day there are stories in the media about Generation Y: They have helicopter parents who run their lives!

The Beauty With The Briefcase
by Amanda Guralski - Jun, 2010
Back when I was in college, I fully subscribed to the philosophy of one Ani DiFranco, patron saint of angst-filled young women. One of her songs, “32 Flavors”, rang profoundly true for me, especially this verse: God help you if you are an ugly girl/’Course too pretty is also your doom/’Cause everyone harbors a secret resentment/for the prettiest girl in the room... Isn’t that the truth? As women, we just can’t win. If we...

by Eva Jenkins - Jun, 2010
While ‘first wave’ gender discrimination was defined by intentional acts of bias that are now prohibited by law, business consultant and professional coach Eva Jenkins points to insidious ‘second wave’ practices embedded in organizational workings that may seem unbiased, but result in different treatment for women and men.

Career Management In The New Workplace
by Leslie B. Prager - Feb, 2010
The work world of today is dramatically different than the workplace was when I began my HR career back in 1980. Those were the days before the social media phenomenon, blackberries, the internet, virtual meetings, etc. The issues facing professionals today include the “new workplace”; fast-paced, on-demand staffing; a multi-generational, cross-cultural workforce; demographic trends such as the aging workforce and baby boomer...

Six Tips For Working Women With Families
by Mary Sherwood Sevinsky - Nov, 2009
I recently responded to a concern from a woman who worked for a government agency. She reported winning several awards a year, but not being promoted as she has special needs children: “The employer felt [her] “family responsibilities” might interfere with [her] ability to handle increased responsibility.” She felt burnt out at work and stressed at home. The employer has control in an employer/employee relationship. As an...
