Where My Girls At?

p1981-149

The philosophy of pursuitology is to change recruiting from the inside out. It is not enough to want diverse employees, you have to change your perspective on how you look at diversity and inclusion. In my “Must be Able to Drive a Zoo Vehicle” presentation at SourceCon, the audience and I…

Women pay inequality in Western Canada

We have seen incredible strides for women in the workforce.  Fifty years ago in 1962 women were mostly still homemakers and just starting to stretch their wings in terms of the labour force.  Today we see in Canada that 50.4% of the labour force is comprised of women, edging men out of the majority by half a percent.  In addition, the market offers more programs directed at encouraging women in the workforce.  For example, based on a test market run in Toronto, Edmonton is the first to…

Women Dressing for Success in the Workplace

As a woman in today’s workplace, do you feel like you are a little more scrutinized in what you wear than your male counterparts?

While women would like to think they are judged for their brains and skills and not their appearance, there is little doubt there are still some offices where what female employees wear to work is given greater scrutiny than men.

In a setting where standard company uniforms…

A Disturbing List! Where Are The Women On Fortune’s 40 Under 40?

Men: 40, Women: 6.

REEEEAAALLLY?

Because they show “ties” for several of the top 40 listings, there are actually 46 people on Fortune’s 40 Under 40, an annual list of business movers and shakers.  13% Women.  You have to get to #20 (#21 really) to see the first woman.  How very sad.  Fortune has been…

Women Now Outnumber Men In The Workforce – What Does This Mean for Our Future?

In February 2010, The New York Times reported that, for the first time in recorded history, women outnumbered men on the nation’s payrolls.

What does this mean for the American workforce?

Unfortunately, women’s ascendance in the workplace is partially related to the recent recession. More men work in industries hit harder by the recession, such as financial services, manufacturing and construction. Women tend to predominate in industries such as education and…

It's 4/20... puff, puff, give (equal pay and opportunity to women)

You know what that means, right?



It's Equal Pay Day. (Please, you know I didn't mean that that 4/20)

Today is the day - we're told - that "symbolizes how far into 2010

women must work to earn what men earned in 2009"
.



Akin to "Tax Day" (the day you supposedly have to work until you make enough

Centered Leadership: How Talented Women Thrive

Joanna Barsh, Susie Cranston and Rebecca A. Craske,



A new approach to leadership can help women become more self-confident and effective business leaders.



Women start careers in business and other professions with the same level of intelligence, education and commitment as men. Yet comparatively few reach the top echelons.

It´s time we face it.



Candidates do not like to apply to postitions when companies advertise vacancies in a vacuum.



Often, companies do not state the name of the company or the salary range for the vacancies they advertise. Insted, they use words such as "Multinational Telecom Company", or "Magic Circle Law Firm" and are silent or vague when it comes to salary. This is often rooted in that companies, or their human resources consultants, want to attract the best candidates… Continue

Tech: A girl´s Best Friend

Women have been struggling for decades to achieve equal status to men when it comes to the workplace. The statistics are way too familiar. In the US, for full-time, year-round workers, women earn around 33% less than men for the same job. For women of color, the gap is even wider.



Women are also more likely to work in more precarious forms of employment with low earnings, little financial security and few or no social benefits. This results in that women also tend to own fewer… Continue
