Forget what you heard about ¡§being one of the boys,¡¨ ¡§having it all,¡¨ and ¡§going for the jugular.¡¨ Here is how real women get ahead. Get In Line According to Catalyst¡¦s 2002 Census of Women Corporate Officers and Top Earners, women fill less than ten percent of line positions held by corporate officers and just 5.2% of top earners at Fortune 500 companies are women.

  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...
  The Fight for Equality Continues, More Subtle, But Still There
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. As America approaches the 50th anniversary of the feminist movement that grew from the civil rights mo...
  Are Poor Project Management and Recruiting Practices Contributing to Gender Discrimination?
by Stephanie Thomas, Ph.D. - Mar, 2010
Are poor project management and recruiting practices contributing to gender discrimination at high-tech firms? Ellen Messmer, of Network World, thinks so. In her post Gender Discrimination Linked to Poor Project Management, she states that 'tech firms rely excessively on a 'hero mindset' to save runaway coding projects that are poorly organized, and employees with family responsibilities -- often women -- are sacrificed as a r...
  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...
  Women: The Interview Double Standard
by Teena Rose - Aug, 2009
Here's an interesting issue to consider: if the job candidate is a woman and the interviewer is a man, is it appropriate for her to cross her legs? It depends. First of all, it's important to understand something about fundamental comfort. Crossing of the legs during an interview is not necessarily a gender thing; men do it as well, and the reason is because it is much easier on the lower back when sitting if at least on...
