Krawcheck Discusses Stalling of Gender Diversity

Sally Krawcheck PictureYou may be aware that I presented Sallie Krawcheck‘s best-seller, Own It, last week at our monthly event, the First Friday Book Synopsis, at the Park City Club in Dallas.  If you missed it, you can buy the handout and live recording at www.15minutebusinessbooks.com.

The book’s premise was that we should not be concerned about excluding men, but rather, including women.  It is a book that will rival Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg.

Randy Mayeux sent me this link, which is an article, and an interview, in which Krawcheck explains that progress in gender diversity in Wall Street firms has come to a slow crawl.  This is the link that you will be interested in:

I found the book provocative, and as is true for many women-in-business books, we have done Own It Book Covera lot of talking about the problems that professional women have faced, and we have very few of the problems solved.  Maybe this book will help.
