There are entire websites dedicated to such valuable pursuits such as, “What does your handwriting say about you?” and, “What’s your signature color?” and even, “Which of The Golden Girls are you?” These sometimes irresistible time-wasters are fun, but how many of us has applied the same consideration when it comes to career targets?

Encouraging & Amplifying

Jul 16, 2019

A study by Harvard Business Review claims during the average business meeting, men do around 75% of the talking. If you’re a female who has ever participated in one of these meetings, you know the “why” behind this statistic isn’t necessarily cut and dry. There are probably more men in the room. Many of the men probably hold more senior positions. Beyond those obvious things, the reasons can get complicated and maybe even a little personal.

Summer for professional women can mean a lot of things: vacations, juggling kids’ uncertain schedules, end of fiscal years, end of second quarters.

If we’re not careful, it can come and go without us using the time wisely.

Summer is often a time when the grass on the other side starts to look even greener than normal. Our friends seem to have unlimited amount of vacation time.

Invisible Labor

The gender pay gap is a hot topic. We hear political pundits, talking heads on the news, and - if we’re lucky - some of our own lawmakers talk about it with enthusiasm and regularity. According to a report by the National Partnership for Women & Families, women in Mississippi are paid 76 cents for every dollar paid to men, which means less money to support themselves, save for the future, and spend on necessities like groceries, tuition, childcare, and mortgages.
