Women's Leadership Exchange

Settling the strike quickly would be the best gift that New Yorkers could get in 2005 The NYC Transit Strike is on and Women's Leadership Exchange is based in New York City - the Capital of the World.

Women's Leadership Exchange

I am very excited about doing the first Women?s s Leadership Exchange Blog. You may ask, ?Why Why do a blog for Women?s s Leadership Exchange??

Welcome Ms. President

Women's Leadership Exchange

After much anticipation and publicity, a woman -- and a very capable woman, I might add, is President of the United States. Well, it's about time. You may think I'm crazy. "It's "It's only a TV show," you may say. But I've learned that reality often imitates what we see on the media. The opportunity for millions of Americans to see a woman in action as "Commander in Chief" every Tuesday night on ABC-TV could go a long way in making it a reality.
