Phyllis Smith's curator insight, July 11, 2013 7:30 PM

Is there a happy medium - probably not.  Women in business are either seen as overly aggressive or outspoken if they try to be on the same playing field as their male co-workers, or they're ignored by their counterparts even when they have something logical to say.- so much for equality.  But times are changing and more women are taking leadership roles.  Let's see how the shoe fits on the other side as we start to outnumber the male co-workers and execs.  How do you see it out there in the business world today?

This doesn’t surprise me! Some things take a little longer to change! I would like to think that women think things through - as opposed to being hesitant!

Things are changing, but oh so slowly, you are right Trisha! I am more and more convinced that we need to take more men onboard to make that change happen as opposed as "fighting" as women alone. I would like to see more women being conscious of what they really want and what is really good for them so that they could be less hesitant...

Networking - Its All About Them, Not You

Networking - Its All About Them, Not You | Career-minded Women | Scoop.it

Like many business owners I attend a number of networking groups on a regular basis meeting a range of people from micro business owners to those running large established businesses. And the people watching is fascinating.

Any new person to a group will quite literally be pounced on by certain regulars. Fresh blood = a new prospect! Always permanently tuned into that well known radio station WIIFM (what’s in it for me).

To me networking is a way of making new contacts, contacts that could support either my business or a client’s business now or in the future.

Boosting the female talent pipeline | UnPlugged | Career-minded Women | Scoop.it

Despite the many advances in workplace equality over the years, women are still not making it to the top in large numbers. We’re down to just three female executives in the FTSE100, and the percentage of women joining boards stands at a lowly 17.3%. Boosting the female talent pipeline is one of the major challenges facing HR directors today, and tackling this challenge means raising awareness of the business case for employing more women.
