Women Working in a Man’s World – Finding Strategies for Success

The term “Women Working in a Man’s World” may be an old and cliché term, but it still carries substantial meaning for those who work in jobs traditionally held by men or in a setting where those in leadership roles are predominantly men and the “masculine” approach to getting results is more accepted. According to the 2012 Catalyst* Census for Fortune 500 companies, only 4.2% of CEOs, 8.1% of Top Earners, 16.6% of Board Seats and 14.3% of Executive Officers are women, although the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that the workforce is 46.9% women.

As women in the workplace, we can either dwell on the inequities demonstrated by this data or we can focus on finding strategies and tactics so more who aspire to move up in their companies and eventually hold these positions are able to meet their goals. In the January 2013 roundtable discussion, we’ll leverage the collaborative power of the participants to identify success strategies for women working in a man’s world.
