Why Google wants women

Why Google wants women | Celebrity Authors | Scoop.it
Vice President of Google[x] Megan Smith talks about the biases against women in engineering that she has personally overcome, and how companies like Google are combating the glass ceiling.

Via Zars Media
Trisha Proud's insight:

Good for Megan - clearly following the trend of several other successful American women who have realised that employing women in key roles can actually add value and balance in the workplace!

What women don't want

What women don't want | Celebrity Authors | Scoop.it
The time is now to change the way women are portrayed in the media. And it is up to us to do it.

Via Cindy Sullivan, Zars Media
Trisha Proud's insight:

A really interesting article albeit slightly American bias; I believe that here in theUKthe media has done much to improve how they portray women. These days on most of the news channels we are seeing many more women of all ages, shapes and sizes; who one would like to think that these women are being employed for their journalist skills and expertise, rather than how they look!

Trisha Proud's insight:

Recently and very sadly India has attracted some unsavoury attention over its attitude towards women but that said there surely can be no doubt that India is the up and coming business economy. Trisha Proud

Rowling unmasked as crime novelist

Rowling unmasked as crime novelist | Celebrity Authors | Scoop.it
Sales of little-known crime novel The Cuckoo's Calling are rocketing after Harry Potter author JK Rowling was revealed as the book's author.
Trisha Proud's insight:

What lessons can we draw from "The Cuckoo's Calling" saga?

 

It was really interesting to read recently that the sales of crime novel The Cuckoo's Calling only rocketed once its author Robert Galbraith was unmasked as JK Rowling!  Is this a tough lesson for “non-celebrities authors” all to come to terms with!.......???
