Role Models for Women

Aug 21, 04

If you get inspiration by reading history and biographies, you will enjoy reading about the 40 enterprising women who helped shape the landscape of American business.

?At the opening of the 21st century, American women own more than 7.7 million firms and represent 40 percent of businesses operating in the United States. Enterprising Women tells the story of the women who paved the way for this success.?

A glimpse of Meg Whitman; President and CEO of E-bay from the website – Meg Whitman doesn’t dwell on male/female leadership differences. “Most of the successful women that I know do not spend a lot of time thinking about their role as a women leader. I wish I could tell you that I had some scientific basis for being a woman executive or managing men versus women and I don’t. You just sort of intuitively do it, and try to do the best job that you can do and learn from your past experiences.”

It has a great section on Mentoring.

Take your time, explore and get inspired!!

I wish we had such an extensive compilation of Asian business women.
