I really liked Leah Eichler's Women@Work column in Saturday's Globe "Forget the binder, let's just have a quota."   It is thoughtful and well researched (as all of Leah's columns are) and it is worth reading the entire article, just to get to the quote from Charlotte Sweeney, a diversity consultant in the second last paragraph and Leah's conclusion in the final paragraph. You can find it by following this link:   This link will take you to Leah Eichler's weekly newsletter Femme-O-Nomics!! I am a subscriber and I find something in it almost every week which interests or educates or inspires me, so I highly recommend it!!   I will come clean and tell you I like pretty much everything Leah Eichler writes and produces ...

Be Courageous and Take Risks

One of the lessons I learned from my interviews with the Babes is to "Be Courageous and Take Risks."   An article in the Globe this morning, highlights this lesson.

Several articles and announcements in the press recently have inspired me and I thought I would share them with you, just in case you had missed them or hadn't found the time to read them.   The first was published in the ROB magazine on March 29. It tells the story of the wonderful Jane Rowe.  In their words: "The mystery woman behind the blockbuster MLSE deal.  Jane Rowe has mastered Bay Street on her own terms."  Jane is a fabulous success and a fantastic role model and I wanted to be certain to share this wonderful piece with you. Congratulations, Jane!! You can find the article at this link   The next two stories were in  the Globe this past Saturday, April 7. The ...
