A friend recently told me about a male colleague; he joined her company one month after she arrived. "He's asking for a $10,000 dollar raise tomorrow at our performance review," she griped. "I can't believe he's doing that. I just can't imagine asking for a raise after only being here for seven months."
Today is Equal Pay Day, which marks how far into MOREFortune Editors - Apr 9, 2013 1:54 PM ET
When Carolyn Everson, Facebook's (FB) VP of global marketing solutions, confronted a management void in Europe, she opted to fix the problem herself. She moved her family--husband Doug and twin daughters--from New Jersey to London.
Now Everson is on the ground for six months, fortifying the European business, visiting international advertisers, and helping in the hunt for a new leader for the region. Last evening, during a quick trip home (she's MOREPatricia Sellers - Mar 28, 2013 2:55 PM ET
Here's a workplace dilemma: How does a male boss mentor a woman in a world where 64% of men are afraid to be in a room alone with a female employee?
Ken Chenault has no fear. "You've got to develop relationships. You can't do things just in a formal context," says the American Express (AXP) CEO, who promotes informal mentoring at his company.
Here's Chenault and Facebook (FB) COO Sheryl Sandberg talking with me MOREPatricia Sellers - Mar 27, 2013 10:42 AM ET
Want to hear my interview with Sheryl Sandberg about what men can learn from Lean In...and how the Facebook (FB) COO applies her book's message to her own family? Click here.Patricia Sellers - Mar 22, 2013 1:29 PM ET
In the crazy media buildup to Monday's release of Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead, author/Facebook (FB) COO Sheryl Sandberg was surprised that men didn't chime into the public discourse. That changed in the past few days. PIMCO CEO Mohamed el-Erian wrote a wise commentary on Sandberg's crusade. I interviewed Sandberg about her message to men. Next week, I'll share with you my interview with Sandberg and MOREPatricia Sellers - Mar 15, 2013 11:07 AM ET
Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead seems to be a book for women only.
Maybe it's not.
New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg and JPMorgan Chase (JPM) Jamie Dimon threw book-promo bashes for Sandberg this past week.
This morning, I met with Sandberg and American Express (AXP) CEO Ken Chenault—another male master of the universe whom the Facebook (FB) COO has captured on her Lean In bandwagon.
Maybe it's feminist MOREPatricia Sellers - Mar 13, 2013 4:18 PM ET
Sheryl Sandberg's evangelism—take risks! go for the big job! Lean In, sister!—hinges on her claim that women aren't moving up in corporate America. Is the Facebook COO-cum-feminist champion right that we are in a state of stagnation?
"There's stagnation at the very top," Sheryl Sandberg told an audience last evening at the Time Warner (TWX) Center in New York.
Here and at just about every stop on her marketing blitz for Lean In: MOREPatricia Sellers - Mar 12, 2013 3:32 PM ET
A look at Silicon Valley's two most powerful women from a journalist who has known both for nearly a decade--and offers news about Mayer's controversial HR policy and nursery at Yahoo
Never in the history of book marketing has there been a crusade quite like Sheryl Sandberg's. Last Thursday in New York, the Facebook (FB) COO hobnobbed with former U.S. Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, film director George Lucas and Barbara Walters MOREPatricia Sellers - Mar 11, 2013 3:37 PM ET
Facebook (FB) COO Sheryl Sandberg and Yahoo (YHOO) CEO Marissa Mayer aren't the only ones stirring up debate about women in the workplace.
Sunday's New York Times featured an unexpected guest writer: former Lehman Brothers (BCS) CFO Erin Callan on "Is There Life After Work?"
As you may recall, ex-Lehman CEO Dick Fuld pushed out Callan and President Joe Gregory in June 2008, four months before Lehman crashed into Chapter 11 bankruptcy. MOREPatricia Sellers - Mar 11, 2013 11:41 AM ET
"Marissa Mayer on God, Family & Yahoo" turned out to be Fortune.com's No. 1 story on Facebook (FB) and LinkedIn (LNKD) last week--and one of the most-read Fortune.com stories of 2012.
When I sat on stage with Mayer last Tuesday at Fortune's Most Powerful Women dinner in Palo Alto--for the first interview that the Yahoo (YHOO) CEO has done since taking the job in July--I had no clue that her comments MOREPatricia Sellers - Dec 3, 2012 2:34 PM ET
