Promoting More Women Will End Sexual Harassment

We go a bit off topic today, although our next WEGGinar™ is about harnessing the power of diversity and inclusion, with an important post about sexual harassment.  Leading sociologists Frank Dobbin from Harvard University and Alexandra Kalev from Tel Aviv University—who are experts on workplace culture and corporate diversity programs, including reasons why they fail—share their take on the current hot topic: sexual harassment in the workplace.

In Harvard Business Reviewthey pen an article that says it all by its lead paragraph:

We already know how to reduce sexual harassment at work, and the answer is actually pretty simple: Hire and promote more women. Research suggests that this solution addresses two root causes of harassment.

Read more about how promoting more women will end sexual harassment.

Women Are Reshaping the World


Is it merely a passing media fad on all the attention about women entrepreneurs?  Or is it a “real, fundamental economic force that’s reshaping the world?” say Jackie VanderBrug in “The Global Rise of Female Entrepreneurs” published by Harvard Business Review.

What do you think?

As the article states:

Women-owned entities in the formal sector represent approximately 37% of enterprises globally — a market worthy of attention by businesses and policy makers alike.

Women Aspire to Move Up in Corporate BRIC

A recent BusinessWeek article states:

At least 59 percent of women in Brazil, Russia, India and China describe themselves as “very ambitious” compared with 36 percent in the U.S., said the study, which drew on surveys of 4,350 college-educated men and women in the so-called BRICs and the United Arab Emirates and one-on-one interviews. At least 75 percent of women in Brazil, India, China and the U.A.E. aspire for a senior job versus 52 percent in the U.S., the report said.

The report, “The Battle for Female Talent in Emerging Markets,” can be found here.

Now the question remains, how many BRIC women aspire to start a business like they do in the United States?
