SHERYL SANDBERG: WOMEN HAVE STALLED AT THE TOP
Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg (Facebook's CEO and COO) sat down this week for an interview with Charlie Rose on Bloomberg TV. Sandberg was asked what she thought of the level of opportunity available to women in the tech sector and in the corporate world in general. While women have made an incredible amount of progress in both higher education and management, the glass ceiling refuses to crack completely. “Over the last ten years, women have stalled out at the top” Sandberg tells Rose. When asked about the resons why, she says: "...I really think we need more women to lean into their careers and to be really dedicated to staying in the work force. I think the achievement gap is caused by a lot of things. It’s caused by institutional barriers and all kinds of stuff. But there’s also a really big ambition gap. And until women are as ambitious as men, they’re not going to achieve as much as men …"

Global Gender Gap Report 2011 shows mixed results
Global Gender Gap Report 2011 shows mixed results
WHERE DO YOU WANT TO BE A WOMAN?
This week, the World Economic Forum released its sixth annual Global Gender Gap Report 2011. It ranked 135 countries, and Iceland topped the list. The report gets its rankings by measuring the gap between men and women in four key areas: Economic participation and opportunity, Educational attainment, Health and survival, and Political empowerment. Of the countries surveyed, 55% narrowed the gender gap, compared with 59% the previous year. Around 85% of countries have improved their gender-equality ratios since the survey began in 2006. However, the report highlights that while differences between men's and women's health and education are disappearing, women still lag behind in economic participation, which includes salaried and skilled jobs and political representation. Nordic countries (Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden) continue to hold top spots, having closed over 80% of their gender gaps! The U.S. came in at number 17, France at 48 and the United Kingdom at 16

 

WoTo takes a look at men and women's attitude toward the career-life balancing act


Men and women both aspire to work-life balance
Men and women both aspire to work-life balance
The past 40 years have seen extraordinary changes in our workplaces and families. Women have entered the workforce in unprecedented numbers and improved their earnings relative to men. At the same time, men have begun to share women's traditional family roles, and men and women have both increased the time they spend with children.

But even as men spend more time with their kids, the challenges of balancing a career and parenting duties are taking their toll. According to a study by the Families and Work Institute, three out of five men reported some or a lot of stress related to workplace-family life balance—about 25% more than in the late 1970s. (For women the numbers have stayed virtually the same, at around 45%.)

Our workplace policies have not caught up with these new realities. We still behave as though it is the primary job of men to be breadwinners, and the primary job of women to be homemakers and caretakers of children and the elderly. Companies and other organizations that want to continue to attract and retain superior talent-men as well as women-need to develop policies that allow their employees to be successful both at home and at work.

WoTo gives you tips for a successful MBA experience


Let’s start with the basics, what exactly is an MBA?
 
The Master in Business Administration is a highly sought after international degree that can give a boost to your career if you already have roughly 5 years of work experience.

Widely known in the United States where it originated, this degree is a bit less notorious in Europe. In France, most French Business Schools are accredited by the “Conférence des Grandes Écoles”, which is an association of higher educational establishments outside the mainstream framework of the public education system.
 
Most MBA students describe the program as a unique opportunity for networking and exchanges on both a professional and personal level with fellow students, past alumni, professors and role models from different fields and countries.

An MBA can open up new possibilities that you hadn’t even thought about, helping you to become one of  tomorrow’s leaders.
