From Red to Black: Women Business Turnaround Gurus
The buzz: Wardrobe! For the first time in 30 years, small business closures outpace start-ups. While women continue to start businesses at a faster rate than men, the percent of women owners grossing at least $1 million has declined from 3 to 2 (Forbes). But when it comes to reigniting a failing business, some women’s scrappiness, agility, multi-tasking, and culture-building strengths give them a competitive edge. Are you one of them? The experts speak. Susan Solovic, THE Small Business Expert: “Always be a first rate version of yourself and not a second rate version of someone else” (Judy Garland). Valerie Shondel, The Business Strategist: “My mother said, ‘If you become a soldier, you’ll be a general, if you become a monk you’ll end up as the pope.’ Instead, I became a painter and wound up as Picasso” (P. Picasso). Joseph Petrafesa II, Strategico: “If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun” (Katherine Hepburn). Tune in for From Red to Black: Women Business Turnaround Gurus.

The Wonder Woman Myth and The Modern Corporation.
In the 21st century, too many women struggle to manage a double shift at work and at home, while grappling with unrealistic pressure to be, do and have it all, aka a modern-day “Wonder Woman.” Yet while women work more hours than ever – a median increase of 80% between 1979 and 2012 – too few companies provide the kind of support that women need to be successful. Even President Obama, in his 2015 State of the Union Address, called for guaranteed paid maternity leave. Executive producer and SAP CLO Jenny Dearborn says, “I look forward to hearing our panelists discuss the role of corporate – and government – policy in rebalancing the load, including job-shares, flex-time, parental leave, and more.” The experts speak. Dr. Ritu Anand, TCS: “Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage” (Anais Nin). Jennifer Anglehart, B/E Aerospace: “Accept no one's definition of your life, define yourself” (Harvey Fierstein.) Join us for The Wonder Woman Myth and The Modern Corporation.

Since then, it seems everyone has voiced an opinion, from Marc Benioff to the Pope.

For and Against “Leaning In”
The Buzz: In or Not? A debate has been raging since Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg's LEAN IN hit bookshelves and became a best-seller in 2013. Fans hail her pro-feminism messages and pragmatic advice, while detractors say her views are misguided, mistaken, and can backfire for women aspiring to soar through the ranks.
