For centuries, women have served their families—preparing food, making clothes, and performing other functions—to make homes for their husbands and children. As times changed and economic opportunities moved from the farms to the factories, the roles of women began to evolve. Instead of staying home and producing goods for the family, women began looking for jobs outside the home. While many women worked in traditionally "female" occupations such as teaching and nursing, many women began working in factories or low-paying clerical and labor jobs. The industrial revolution forever changed the way the American economy ...

A short note on corporate "diversity training" - TigerHawk
TigerHawk (ti*ger*hawk): n. 1. The title of this blog and the nom de plume of its founding blogger; 2. A deep bow to the Princeton Tigers and the Iowa Hawkeyes; 3. The nickname for Iowa's Hawkeye logo. Posts include thoughts of the day on international affairs, politics, things that strike us as hilarious and personal observations. The opinions we express are our own, and not those of each other, our employers, our relatives, our dead ancestors, or unrelated people of similar ethnicity. Glenn Reynolds links to a New York Times blog post that raises the possibility that corporate diversity training might not ... market research, surveys and trends

The Status Of Women Managers In The United States - Research and ...
By the year 2000, it has been predicted that women will comprise the majority of new entrants into the United States labor force (Johnston and Packer, 1988). More and more working women are choosing management careers (U.S. Department of Labor, 1993). While they are finding that entry into the management profession is an achievable task, women are having great difficulty breaking through the "glass ceiling," the invisible barrier that separates women from positions of significant corporate power (U.S. Department of Labor, 1991a). This article discusses the current situation of women managers in the United States and ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Financial Reform Bill Calls For Diversity
Washington....Tucked into the Wall Street reform bill was a little-noticed provision pushing for more diversity in the disproportionately white and male world of finance, and its potentially far-reaching implications have set off alarm bells among conservatives and some in the financial sector. The provision pushes all federally regulated financial firms that do business with the government and their subcontractors to hire more women and minorities and also calls upon federal agencies to diversify their own ranks. Michael Yaki, a member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, hailed it as the most significant step the federal ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Question: Minorities and management
Why do some women and minorities tend to opt out of the management tract in some organizations? What are the non-discriminatory barriers for them such as inadvertent and hidden barriers, even cultural ones? Any good studies/best practices on getting minorities and women into the front end (supervisory level) of the management pipeline? Thanks, Mike Answer by Researcher czh on Mon 21 Sep 2009 - 10:00 am UTC: Hello again Mike, It was fairly easy to find information about women’s progress in management. Finding similar information about "minorities" is more difficult. Part of the reason is that there isn’t a ...
The Answer to the Coming Labor Shortage
Despite a predicted labor shortage and the anticipated retirement of millions of working Baby Boomers, many companies assign employee development opportunities only on an informal basis according to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM)/Catalyst 2005 Employee Development Survey Report. In response to these findings, organizations may find it necessary to move toward formally assigning training programs as part of a structured employee development process to develop current employees.
