Young and Female in the U.S. Army

February 13, 2012

Military women have been weighing in ever since last week's "easing" of restrictions on women soldiers. The resounding message from female soldiers who have "been there & done that" say it is time to stop judging soldiers on gender and start judging them on capabilities.  Here's a great piece from the Daily Beast on the topic. 

I just started reading afascinating book, Love My Rifle More Than You -- a report from the front lines on what it's like to be young and female in the U.S. Army.

Overcoming the Gender Ambition Gap

February 8, 2012

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg told global leaders gathered at the World Economic Forum in Davos that a "Gender Ambition Gap" is a major barrier to women moving into leadership roles. What can we do to close that gap? Get over our reluctance to leverage our  personal and professional networks -- to achieve our own goals and to invest in the business, influence and political success of others.  

And let's stop "punishing" women who are savvy enough and courageous enough to mix business with pleasure, as men have been doing for centures.   Becoming a conscious and strategic product champion is a powerful skill.  

Here's the column I wrote for Forbeswoman on why we need to master the skill and stop stifling it in others.
