by Ariadne Moisiades - Dec, 2008

by Kerrie Halmi - Nov, 2008
One obstacle that women create for themselves in Corporate America is not asking for what they need. At a conference I attended, a female CEO told the story of how when she became CEO, the men lined up outside her office to ask her to be their mentor.
