Issue 169 - 03 | The Forgotten Diversity Group: Ambitious Women Who Want to Lean “In-Between”By Kathryn Sollmann
Published Oct. 10, 2018 2:00 p.m.
In the last decade, I’ve coached thousands of women who feel like they’re letting down the power sisterhood if they don’t do their part to break the glass ceiling. These women in the everyday sisterhood are smart, capable and ambitious—but they want alternate routes to ‘grow in place’ while family pressures are high. When I speak to women’s groups, my message is that ‘Up is Not the Only Way Forward.’ To prevent women from taking costly caregiving breaks, and to retain great talent, employers need to make room for many brands of ambition and success.”
