Sure, women have come a long way, baby, but the glass ceiling hasn’t even been scratched, let alone broken.
Women hold more MBAs than men, but are employed in fewer executive positions for far less money.
The Troy Rotary Club of Michigan–I’m going to be President next year– is honoring Troy business women and women everywhere with its second annual Troy Business Woman of the Year Awards luncheon on Wednesday, October 5.
Detroit-area folks are welcome to attend and nominate. Here are details.
