Women's Leadership in the Age of Obama

January 28, 2009

I had a fascinating conversation recently with Marie Wilson, president of The White House Project, on women's leadership and the barriers that are still keeping America's women overachievers from taking their places at the heads of tables of influence.  Click here to listen. 

You'll find the interview in the archive:  January 23, 2009.

What's Still Blocking Women's Leadership Path to the White House?

January 23, 2009

What an historic sea change is sweeping across our mental template these days of what a leader looks like.  In the wake of President Barack Obama's historic election to the Oval Office, what about women?  What impact, I'm wondering, will the U.S. presidency of the first African American have on expanding leadership opportunities for others who don't look like the traditional -- white, male -- leader?

In particular:  women.  

The day after the Inauguration I had a fascinating conversation with Marie Wilson, president of The White House Project.  The mission of her national organization is to advance women's leadership in all arenas -- including to the Oval Office.  As our nation opens a new chapter in our history, here are the thoughts of a wise and insightful leader on the missing links that are still keeping America's women achievers from becoming the leaders the world is crying out for.  To hear the interview, click here.    

Interview with Founding President of the Women's Media Center

January 20, 2009

I had a fascinating conversation about women and leadership recently with Carol Jenkins, the founding president of the Women's Media Center and a nationally recognized TV broadcast journalist.   To listen to her insights on where women are today in our progress toward becoming genuine leaders,click here. 

You'l find the interview in the archive:  Jan. 20, 2009.

Interview with Carol Jenkins, President of Women's Media Center

January 20, 2009

Carol Jenkins, nationally-acclaimed TV news journalist and the founding president of the Women's Media Center spoke to me recently about where she sees American women today as we continue to ascend toward greater leadership positions in shaping our nation.  

 I'm posting our conversation on an historic day in United States history:  January 20th, 2009.  Inauguration Day for Barack Obama, our 44th president and the first African American to take what he described toay as a "sacred oath."  We rejoice in this day and look forward to greater numbers of women and people of all colors -- black, brown, yellow and red -- to come together, as Obama challenged us to do to fulfill the promise of America.  Click here to listen to the thoughts of Jenkins, another remarkable American leader, on the qualities she believes women achievers need to develop as we continue to evolve -- in greater numbers -- into genuine leaders. 

P.S. If you haven't seen the excellent video, Sexism Sells But We're Not Buying It, that the Women's Media Center put together during the presidential campaign, it's don't miss material.  It pulls together a stunning sampling of outrageously sexist comments made by national political news commentator during the 2008 presidential campaign. 

Mitch Albom, Sports Illustrated and The Courage of Detroit

January 13, 2009

I'm a Detroiter.   Well, OK, I'm the daughter of a New Yorker and a Chicagoan who met at Notre Dame and raised 7 little Doyles in the shadow of the University's famous Golden Dome.   My family didn't move to Detroit until my father's work as a sports broadcaster for WWJ Radio brought him here in 1968 -- the year the Detroit Tigers won the World Series.  My work has taken me all over the world, but no matter where I moved, events and opportunities kept bringing me back to Motown.  So, now I think of myself as a Detroiter, just as much as Diana Ross, Gordie Howe and Henry Ford.

That's why I feel the pain that so many of us here have experienced as we have watched ourselves scorned and defiled and treated as America's whipping boy, during the recent auto industry crisis. We're stunned, hurt and sick of it.  My hat goes off to Mitch Albom, a nationally-known columnist for the Detroit Free Press and author (Tuesday's with Morrie), who was asked by Sports Illustrated to write a piece on Detroit.  Wherever you live, if you think of yourself as a Detroiter, have family and business connections here, or just want to get a sense of who we really are, I hope you'll take the time to read The Courage of Detroit. 

Albom is a splendid writer and he captures the heart and soul of the people of a great American city.     

One Gender's Crash

January 11, 2009
Former Harvard business professor and Barnard college president Deborah Spar raised interesting questions in the Washington Post recently about male and female differences when it comes to risk.  Nature knows what it's doing.  A balance of male and female behavior, values and decision-making are as essential for healthy business as they are for the survival of our species.  Here's her piece from WashingtonPost.com. 

Transcending: The Uniqueness of Women's Friendships

January 10, 2009
Just got back from two weeks in Australia.  I'll write about that next.  First, I wanted to share a wonderful video of New York Times best-selling author Kelly Corrigan reading her words on transcending life's setbacks and the uniqueness of women's friendships.  Former Ford Motor Company executive, organizational consultant and dear friend Nancy Badore sent this to me.  Women and men truly are very different, but complementary beings.   If you are a woman, you'll relate.  If you are a man who takes the time to listen to this (it's a little over 4 minutes), it will give you insight into women's lives and values.   I pass it along to you.  Here's the link.  Enjoy.
