How do women stack up against men in the world of entrepreneurship? What drives both sexes to stop working for someone else and start working for themselves? I spoke to two incredibly entrepreneurial New York writers, Mandy Stadtmiller, “Unwifeable” columnist for New York Magazine, and Ryan Reiss, contributing writer to Late Night with Seth Meyers and Fox News, about what it takes make a mark in your industry, and to become your own boss.
You'd think the one profession where you'd find complete equality would be the Legal profession, right? I mean, by definition it is supposed to protect and promote just that. The law school/associate positions do, in fact, start out with an equal gender balance ratio, but by the time we get to the partnership level, the results are very different. What happens from associate to partner? I talked to Karen Bergreen and Barry J. Mandel, two New York lawyers, about their experiences in Law, and what they thought about gender differences in the workplace.
