Naked in the Boardroom - an interview with the author
Naked in the Boardroom by Robin Wolaner is on the Business Blog Book Tour this week. The tour starts off with this post, and then this interview with Robin. The book includes 81 "naked truths" for women.
Here are a few of the rules...
If an idea is a good one, more than one person will have it.
Choose your teachers based on talent and personal connection, not upon hierarchy or shared gender.
And a few statistics from the interview...
Women make up 47% of the labor force and 51% of managerial, professional and related positions. Yet there are just 8 female CEOs at Fortune 500 companies. Only 3% of women entrepreneurs lead businesses that gross over 1 million in revenues. Dismal numbers.
