A farewell, as I go break a little glass of my own

A farewell, as I go break a little glass of my own

This is my last post for Breaking Glass. Not because I don't love this blog — I really, really do — and not because I've grown tired of the women in business beat. It's quite the opposite actually.

Lawsuit claims jewelry store giant underpaid and sexually harassed its female employees

Lawsuit claims jewelry store giant underpaid and sexually harassed its female employees

A dollar fifty might not seem like much. But when you multiply that by eight hours a day, forty hours a week and 52 weeks a year, pocket change turns into big bucks. And when the men in an organization are making that money and the women — with the exact same qualifications and experience — aren't, it begs the question: What is wrong with that company?

Leaning in, at long last

Leaning in, at long last

Small business lender looks to give women-owned businesses a 'lift'

There are certain perks to being a woman-owned business. Some I knew about — such as when companies are looking to diversify their suppliers and reserve certain contracts and jobs for businesses run by women.

Three images of women in business you have to see to believe

I heard the news today that Sheryl Sandberg, of Facebook and Lean In fame, has teamed up with Getty Images to create a library of stock images that offer a powerful depiction of women.
