Sexual Harassment Dominates Headlines (Again)

  • SEXUAL HARASSMENT: This week was tough. More women came forward about Harvey Weinstein's decades of sexual harassment in the workplace, and others were named as harassers. We could link to any number of stories here, but we think Man Repeller's piece on dealing with sexual harassment while it's happening is the most actionable.  
  • BAD APPLE: Apple's diversity chief has an interesting view on diversity, Quartz reports
  • DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH: Challenges at work suck, but there are ways to learn from them. This Lenny piece details how. 
  • MIDDLE MANAGERS: Women are stuck in middle management, the Wall Street Journal reports. We can get them out through intensive leadership programs and other initiatives. 
  • GRAB YOUR WALLET: We still have a lot of work to do when it comes to opposing Trump's family of companies, Grab Your Wallet founder Shannon Coulter told Shondaland
  • ACQUISITIVE BEHAVIOR: We love this list on Medium of seven companies founded by black women that were successfully acquired.
  • BOSSY BABES: More women are asking for raises, the Wall Street Journal reports. But there's a catch: Once these women ask for more money, they're seen as bossy and intimidating by their co-workers.
