Leave the Ladder Down

In recent years, my interest in women’s issues in the workplace has increased.  My connections with other moms, female professionals, and even women I’ve never met but who offer a new perspective, has kept me going through the pandemic.  I’ve always considered myself an independent and motivated person, but like many female professionals, I’ve experienced rough patches and roadblocks throughout my career.  In reflecting on some of my own struggles, as well as those of my colleagues, I have gained a heightened awareness that many of the uncomfortable and demoralizing interactions experienced by women are perpetuated by other women.  Now,…

Everything Nobody Ever Told Me: People Skills Make All the Difference

Yesterday my colleague called me up for a vent session.  She had prepared a really complicated tax filing for a client and the client responded by sending a list of about fifteen things she thought was wrong with it.  Well, the clients concerns were all unfounded and my colleague patiently and politely addressed each and every complaint.  The client apologized for her snippy e-mail and stated that taxes made her anxious.  It was really nice to get an acknowledgement from the client that her behavior was unacceptable.  Everyone gets snippy once in a while and its entirely forgivable.  Unfortunately, this…

5 Reasons Why Women are Effective Leaders

Diversity in gender is still a debatable topic especially when it comes to leadership positions. We've known that women made tremendous efforts and tons of work to be where they are currently, yet some are still struggling in proving to the world that they are equally smart as men and that they also deserve to be leaders. Take Sabahat Akhter for example, she is the Project manager for leading printing companies like Imprint. Imprint produces promotional products like custom coffee mugs, yard signs, etc, whether it's for advertorial, marketing, business, or personal use. She has experience in data management and product…

My Divorce Story and How I Survived

People from all walks of life have that longing of being attached to someone and be valued for who they are as a person. Man and woman are wired differently yet the desire of being connected intimately is inherent in the deepest core of an individual. Those who are seriously in love will consider marriage to make the union official, permanent and later on form a family that makes up a society. Marriage is a sacred covenant wherein two people publicly declare their union as recognizable by law, customs, and religious beliefs. It brings about euphoria but responsibilities are also…

Violence Against Women During COVID-19 Times: What to do?

Your partner apologizes and claims that the hurtful behavior will not happen again; however, you fear it'll. Sometimes you wonder whether you imagine the abuse, yet the emotional or physical pain you feel is real. If it sounds familiar, you might be experiencing domestic violence. The UN has described the worldwide upsurge in domestic abuse as a"shadow pandemic" along with the Covid-19 pandemic. It has thought cases have increased by 20% during the lockdown, as many individuals are trapped at home with their abuser.

A Very Different Thanksgiving

Every Thanksgiving we’re reminded to “count our blessings.” This year that phrase just hit a little differently. Although my Thanksgiving looked nothing like it had in years past, I found myself in utter awe of how incredibly fortunate I was. For me, Thanksgiving begins the season of slowing down. Although the hustle and bustle of selecting gifts and making holiday plans kicks off, it’s the start of a season when most people can take some time off of work and relax. We trade in rush hour traffic for holiday movies and cookies. So while I found myself pouring over a…

Everything Nobody Ever Told Me: How to Stop Office Gossip in Its Tracks

“What you don't see with your eyes, don't witness with your mouth.” -Jewish Proverb My friend Jen used to describe her best friend since childhood, Tracy, as a complete screw-up.  Every time she would mention her, she would roll her eyes and bring up Tracy’s latest failed relationship or the crazy man in her life.  I had never met Tracy and I have to admit, without any other evidence to the contrary, I began to think of Tracy as a screw-up too.  I attended a social gathering at Jen’s house one evening and was speaking to a woman who was…
