Why do many women execs leave?

October 19, 2009

Xavier University business professor tries to find out

The turnover rate for women in top positions was 33 percent, but for men it was 19 percent. And it was even higher in functions such as law, marketing, research and development, and operations.

… women in these positions were actually getting better positions in different organizations and perhaps becoming CEOs. Women became very sought-after in government and private business. Some became deans in big universities.

And many women started their own companies. Their family was the reason they left the workforce, but they did not want to just take care of their families. They used the opportunities and flexibility to start their own organizations.

Women use social media more than men: what’s news orgs’ response?

October 6, 2009

News organizations, take note: More women than men are using social media, a new study says.

The study, from Information is Beautiful, uses Google Ad Planner numbers to come up with its conclusion that more women than men use many popular social networks. Digg stands out because 64 percent of users are men. LinkedIn and YouTube are tied, genderwise.

You can view that data yourself, but here are some findings I found interesting:

Twitter: 57 percent women users.

Facebook: 57 percent women users.

Flickr: 55 percent women users.

Science, math in vogue at Hughes

October 2, 2009

“(STEM) is really a shift in what you value,” Johnson said. “Do you value making sure kids can answer multiple-choice questions about vocabulary, or do you want to develop the next generation of critical thinkers and problem solvers who are going to do the critical things we need?”

The old Hughes Center is no longer accepting new students, although current 10th-, 11th- and 12th-graders will be able to finish their studies. As those classes graduate, the new STEM program will grow one grade per year. By 2013, the transformation will be complete.

And, its acoustics are the best of any place we have ever been. You’ll love it!

Women gain in historic job shift

September 8, 2009

Women are on the verge of outnumbering men in the workforce for the first time, a historic reversal caused by long-term changes in women’s roles and massive job losses for men during this recession.

//

Women held 49.83 percent of the nation’s 132 million jobs in June and they’re gaining the vast majority of jobs in the few sectors of the economy that are growing, according to the most recent numbers available from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
