Travailler ou enfanter ? Le choix des japonaises | Womann's world | Gender-Balanced Leadership | Scoop.it

Geishas. Un terme qui incarne pour beaucoup d’entre nous le Japon au féminin. Et pourtant, elles sont loin d’incarner la Japonaise du 21e siècle. Tiraillée entre tradition et modernité, celle-ci se bat aujourd’hui pour concilier vie professionnelle et vie familiale. Et il y a encore fort à faire.

Her name is Josefina Vazquez Mota. The 51-year-old mother of three girls wants to be the next Mexican president. The fact that she's a woman, she has said, gives her a competitive advantage. "Yes, I'm here because I am a woman; but above everything else, I'm here because I have a political career focused on serving people," Vazquez Mota says.

Everything we know about improving gender diversity points to one uniquely important success factor.

Welcome to Women Into Building

Welcome to Women Into Building | Gender-Balanced Leadership | Scoop.it

I am Sam Sheppard, the licensed builder behind this National first initiative; a small lot home designed, constructed and supplied predominantly by women. Without a doubt this has become a career highlight for me, inspired by a conversation between Carey DeBoer from Totally Workwear and Radmilla Desic, Queensland President for NAWIC. The suggestion was put to me and I thought it was fantastic but extremely ambitious, let’s face it, to cover all vocations and trades, women may be few and far between.

Marshall said many people have distorted views of power and authority, believing money is the main motivation for good work.
“In the short term, that’s true,” Marshall said. “But in the long term for sustainability, creativity and high levels of innovation, you need long-term commitment, and it doesn’t matter what you pay people.”
Women typically want employers to “honor who they are” and feel most motivated when they can connect their talents to the organization, she said.
“What motivates people is a sense of purpose, a sense of meaning in their work, a sense of freedom and autonomy, of what we’re trying to achieve together is so much bigger and more important than any one of us,” she said.

Gendercide

Gendercide | Gender-Balanced Leadership | Scoop.it

Killed, aborted or neglected, at least 100m girls have disappeared—and the number is rising.

In China and northern India more than 120 boys are being born for every 100 girls. Nature dictates that slightly more males are born than females to offset boys’ greater susceptibility to infant disease. But nothing on this scale.

sydneyncollins's curator insight, April 24, 2014 2:10 PM

I chose this article because in half the sky it talked about how the baby girls were being killed and aborted because of the advancement in being able to use an ultra sound to see the gender of the baby being carried. It also talks about the boy to girl ratios are are off from how they should be naturally in not only China and India but in other Asian countries in that region.

Fritz's curator insight, May 8, 2014 12:45 PM

I chose this article because it focuses mainly on countries like China and India, where the ratio of boys to girls is hugely skewed because of parents' many reasons to want a boy as opposed to a girl, such as dowry and marriage. The article explains how this leads to many illegal abortions, and this disproportionate ratio. It relates to Half the Sky because they both go into detail about how many female fetuses are aborted illegally simply because they are not males, and how it leads to skewed populations.

SUÈDE • L’égalité des sexes dès le plus jeune âge | Gender-Balanced Leadership | Scoop.it

“Nous traitons les enfants comme des individus plutôt qu’en fonction de leur sexe”, explique Lotta Rajalin, la directrice d’Egalia. Car les écoles maternelles sont censées combattre la répartition traditionnelle des rôles entre les sexes, promouvoir l’égalité et laisser les enfants se forger librement leur propre identité. C’est ce que préconise la loi sur l’enseignement de la petite enfance de 1998.

The Top 10 Emotionally-Intelligent Fortune 500 CEOs | Marcourt's Blog | Gender-Balanced Leadership | Scoop.it

When I graduated from biz school, I thought I had to be superhuman if I were ever to be a successful CEO. But after two dozen years of being a CEO, I’ve come to learn that the best leaders aren’t the comic strip heroes, they’re just super humans who have developed the four capacities that Goleman outlined for EI: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and relationship management. As Goleman recently told me, “EI includes a broad spectrum of competencies, and no leader is A+ across the board – even the best have room to improve.”
