“Don’t mistake politeness for lack of strength.” —U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonya Sotomayor
Ask a woman how she got from there to here in the work world and you’ll rarely find a straight line. Women’s work-related struggles are different, but common threads exist including lower pay (a woman earns only 79% of what a man earns) and slower promotion rates. Still (or maybe because), in 2015, over 30 percent of U.S. businesses were owned by women—bringing in $1.6 trillion in revenue and employing over 8 million people combined. By 2018, 1 in 3 new jobs will be generated by women-owned businesses.
Melnick & Melnick, S.C., a law firm and woman-owned business, is committed to Partnering with Enterprising Women. We allocated web space to this mission—supporting women business owners and encouraging their personal growth and development—and are launching the new website on March 8, 2017, International Women’s Day. We’ll focus on four categories:
