Women in executive roles, whether business or political: how they advance, and what they overcome

Dear Readers:

Recent business and political news has precipitated my thinking even more than I had been about women who hold executive office, whether in business or in government. I’ve also had the opportunity to speak about this topic. So, I put pen to paper and thought to share these recent articles in one place with you.

For Crain’s Chicago Business:

For Huffington Post Politics:

One reminder of how important executive roles are: if Republicans win a majority in the U.S. Senate come Election Day, all the current women chairs of senate committees (and we’re talking big committees here) will be gone. And, since 16 of the current 20 women senators are Democrats, that doesn’t leave much room for the Republican women to take over in the same measure.

Dare I also say: #everydayiselectionday!

Best wishes.
