Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) October 21, 2009
Marie Wilson, founder and President of The White House Project and leading women's advocate, will be featured on Women Mean Business, an internet radio show on VoiceAmerica Talk Radio Network at 2pm Eastern on Tuesday, October 27. Women Mean Business explores how women can thrive in business and how corporate America can thrive by embracing the power and talent of women. Each week, the show features thought leaders and subject matter experts to help women overcome the challenges they face in the business world.
Marie Wilson will join us for a stimulating conversation about the current state of women as leaders in both the public and private sector, why we need more women in leadership roles, and what we can do to advance women's leadership. She will give us a preview of her upcoming report, Benchmarking Women's Leadership. The report, which is scheduled for release November 13th, challenges some of our major assumptions about the progress women have made as leaders in business and government.
Host Bonnie Marcus shared, "I am thrilled to have Marie as a guest on Women Mean Business. Marie's lifelong career has been dedicated to the promotion of women's leadership." The White House Project "aims to advance women's leadership in all communities and sectors - up to the U.S. Presidency, by filling the leadership pipeline with a richly diverse critical mass of women".
Judy Woodruff, broadcast journalist and anchor, The News Hour with Jim Lehrer, states, "Marie Wilson focuses her passion and her scholarship on the stunning scarcity of American women in leadership positions, even as we move full speed into the twenty-first century. She provides hard evidence our country will suffer unless we do something about it."
