Why Hiring Older Women Makes Sense

Women are expected to crunch their achievements into a timetable that often lasts less than 20 years, Sally Koslow writes in The New York Times. “Find a partner. Raise some chicks. Zoom to the top of your field. Check each box by 50,”  the former McCalls editor writes. But working later in life is where many women find their calling, only by that time employers are looking for younger talent. “Women need to speak up about this issue, just as female hiring managers should think about hiring women the age of their mother.”

Men to Women: Shhhhhh

When Arianna Huffington pointed to the benefits of women serving on boards of directors, her male colleague snapped back, saying women talk too much.

That off-the-cuff comment cost David Bonderman his cushy gig: he resigned from the Uber board as the company claims that it’s determined to clean up its culture.


The same day, a male congressional colleague interrupted California Senator Kamala Harris — triggering women to express their outrage on social-media.

To most women, stuff like this is routine: we live in a society that expects women to take back seat or just shut up when it comes to important issues.

Whatever became of the saying, “I am woman. Hear me roar?”
