NYC Transit Strike: Could Women Do Better?

Women's Leadership Exchange

The NYC Transit Strike is on and Women's Leadership Exchange is based in New York City - the Capital of the World. I say Capital of the World not because I'm an egomanic about WLE's home base, but because it's been said by many others in books, magazine articles, etc. How is it that the Capital of the World goes on strike? Most of us, who are based here, are still in shock.

" But even more than "a stand, " her action, or refusal to get up from her seat to make room for whites, was a pivotal event in civil rights history. It thrust Rev.

It Hurts To Lose

Women's Leadership Exchange

Losing is painful. The NY Yankees lost the American League division tonight and I am hurting. I am a woman first; a wife and mother second. A business owner third. And a NY Yankee fan fourth. I am a BIG Yankee Fan. I love watching them. They're cool, confident, warm, charismatic, sometimes intense. Recent years they haven't looked so good during the summer, but by the end of the season, they always pull it together and play like silk.until tonight when they lost to the LA Angels. But I love them.

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??

Another reason for the blog is that I have an opinion on everything and I?m m usually too busy to share it with anyone.
