Previous Article Next Article Womenare deselecting themselves from top posts in business because the executivelifestyle does not offer sufficient flexibility, experts say.Delegatesat the ‘Driving Diversity Success’ discussions, organised by the CharteredInstitute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), agreed that women had much moreexposure to the benefits of flexible working than men due to breaks inemployment for maternity and career changes.Thegender divide was widened further by an ongoing perception of men as the chiefbreadwinners, delegates said.DeborahRees, director of InnectoPeople Consulting, said that a study she had carried out showed that eight outof 10 high-flying women had chosen to set up their own businesses rather thanstay in corporate life.”Womenhave looked at what is available and have seen there is not enough there forthem – the rewards aren’t attractive enough,” she said.PhilBadley, assistant chiefexecutive of HR at Stockport Council, said: “Men will wait in line -womendon’t hang about.”VanessaRobinson, organisation and resourcingadviser at the CIPD, said the challenge was to shift the gender mindset toencourage women to stay in business and ensure that they did not have to act”in a male way” to get to the top.Shesaid that to overcome stereotypes and misconceptions, gender initiatives had tobe targeted at men as well as women.Arecent study by the University of Exeterfound that having broken through the glass ceiling, women then face a ‘glasscliff’, because businesses often offered themtop positions when the company was in trouble.Thiswas due to the perception that women faired better in crisis situations thanmen, the research claimed.ByMichael Millar Women are dropping out of top posts due to a lack of flexibilityOn 14 Sep 2004 in Personnel Todaylast_img read more

Plimsoll: all change for top bakery jobs

first_imgA wave of new appointments at senior management level among bakery companies in the UK is set to prompt a radical change in their behaviour, says Plimsoll.A new report from the industry analyst says there have been 722 new appointments at director level among the top 980 companies in the last 18 months, in an industry with 2,153 directors in total.This new blood will change the industry, says senior analyst David Pattison: “Companies don’t do business with companies – people do business with people. But people are changing and firms will lose business simply because they took a customer, competitor or supplier for granted based on an older management style.”Plimsoll investigated each company’s financial performance and found the challenge for 180 of the new appointments was to keep the company afloat. For 542 others it was to improve performance.Pattison said: “The reasons for the appointments are varied. Some have been taken on to find a buyer for the company, while others have been appointed to see through a management buyout. A quarter of directors are over the age of 60 and we will see more evolution in the near future.”The report says the average director’s salary in the baking industry was £70,566 last year.To obtain a £50 discount on the £300 report quote the code PR02 online at: [http://www.plimsoll.co.uk]last_img read more

Student assault victim shares experience

first_imgThe Justice Education Department at Saint Mary’s began its “Week Against Violence” on Tuesday night in the Student Center with the discussion “Beyond the Violence,” led by Saint Mary’s junior Jessica Richmond, who discussed her personal account of violence.“Authenticity requires vulnerability, courage and integrity,” Richmond said, adding that she lives by these words.Richmond shared her story of physical and sexual assault to offer perspective and advice to her peers as fellow victims and friends of victims.Allison D’Ambrosia “People see vulnerability as being weak,” she said “But I build my life around viewing vulnerability as a strength ⎯ being open to having conversations like these, airing my dirty laundry, as I like to say.”Although Richmond openly shared her personal encounter with violence, she said she was once much more reluctant to speak about the horrific experience.“There are very few people in my life that knew what happened and to the great detail of what happened,” she said.Richmond, who shared her story with her father this past weekend, said her parents’ reactions to the events were why she did not want to tell them in the first place. Richmond said that upon hearing of her attack, her mother misdirected her frustration toward her daughter. She said her mother’s strong reaction made her more cautious about delving into details.“I almost felt as if there was resentment towards me for not telling her sooner,” Richmond said. “My mom immediately jumped to ‘What did he do to you?’ and being a victim, I recommend you never do that to someone because that instantly put me on the defensive. I didn’t want to tell her.”Richmond said many people, including her mother, have asked her why she did not report her attack.“I’m not trying to play into being young because I think there are many younger women that are stronger than I was [who are also] assaulted, but I was so scared,” she said. “I was so alone. I had no idea [of] the resources out there. I had no idea what to do. I was scared of him.”This fear lies in the systemic sexism of the United States’ judicial system, Richmond said.“Men have a power and an authority in society, and there’s a lot that goes into that,” Richmond said. “But he scared me to death. Even after knowing he no longer worked with me, he didn’t live near me, he terrified me.”Richmond said her decision to keep the attack private was an act of self-preservation.“It was the thought of going to the police and saying I wanted to press charges when there was no evidence and when no one knew about what had happened,” Richmond said. “I didn’t want to air my dirty laundry for the whole world to have him get a slap on the wrist.“I didn’t want to have to tell my story a thousand times only to be told ‘Well, there’s nothing we can do.’”Richmond said she also feared it would become a “he said, she said” situation, or she would be condemned for not explicitly saying “no.”“Life went on,” she said. “I didn’t report it. That is the one thing I come back to most often. Maybe I should have. Maybe if I called him to justice, it could have gone in my favor. I find myself still sort of switching a little bit, but I don’t regret not reporting.”Richmond said her decision not to report might not be the best choice for all other victims of violence. Each person should make an individual choice.“Do I think [other victims] should?” Richmond said. “Yes, because there’s a great chance [they] can get something out of it, but I think for my health I couldn’t. This is not ‘Law and Order.’ Due process doesn’t happen in 45 minutes.”Richmond said she attributes much of her growth since the attack to her boyfriend of three-and-a-half years.“He’s my support system,” she said. “It’s kind of strange because he’s a man, he’s six-foot-seven and almost three hundred pounds. He is my version of empowerment.”Richmond said her boyfriend and his sensitivity played key roles in her ability to heal.“I found that when we first started dating I had all sorts of triggers,” she said. “ A certain smell would throw me into a hysterical crying fit, a certain way of being touched, a certain playful comment. Sometimes it wasn’t the words that were being said; it was just the tone it was said in.“I can’t have my neck touched. That is like my one thing that will put me in a fetal position crying.”As a victim of violence, Richmond said it is amazing to have someone there to say, “Okay, that’s completely fine. I respect you for that.”“Once I got to that point, I became offended when people used tamer words because it’s oppressive,” she said. “Don’t be afraid of using the terms. Don’t be afraid to say, ‘She was raped.’”Richmond said that in spite of having a solid and healthy relationship with her boyfriend now, if she could go back in time she would tell her high school self that she did not need a man.“We’re women at such an amazing school with such an empowering philosophy that we can do anything,” she said. “I don’t want someone to stand in front of me.“That’s what’s great about [my] relationship now. [My boyfriend] stands behind me pushing me forward.”Adrienne Lyles-Chockley, head of the Justice Education Department, ended the discussion by offering Richmond affirmations on behalf of the audience.“This is such a gift and a refreshingly honest dialogue, so I want to affirm this and affirm you,” Lyles-Chockley said.The Justice Education professor said she also supported Richmond’s decision to not go to the police.“I’d also just like to affirm your choice not to report,” Lyles-Chockley said. “I appreciate that part of giving the person that was raped or assaulted control [means] granting them control of what happens next. So we support women by listening and helping according to their individual needs. Friends often don’t understand, and it’s just not that simple.”As a continuation of the “Week against Violence,” Saint Mary’s will host a panel presentation on community responses to violence against women, titled “Justice and the Victims: Beyond Law and Order,” on Thursday night at 7 p.m. in the Vander Vennet Theater.

Technology Task Force to study electronic court filing

first_img November 15, 2002 Regular News Technology Task Force to study electronic court filing Technology Task Force to study electronic court filing While the Bar’s proposed Internet portal remains its top priority, the Bar’s Technology Task Force is also studying electronic filing for the courts.Chair David Welch told the Board of Governors in October that a subcommittee has been looking into e-filing, recognizing it is something lawyers will deal with in the future.At the task force’s recent meeting, the group got an overview of the e-filing technology that is already in place in Sarasota County.The Sarasota system, Welch reported, is accessible from a Web site and allows lawyers to review pleadings, filings, and documents online. He said the task force believes it is the first e-filing system in the state.“There’s nothing that any of us can do to stop the technology changes that are coming on us,” Welch said. “We will have e-filing in this state. The only question is when.”last_img read more

12 ways your smartphone is a financial risk

first_imgAn increasing percentage of smartphone owners are using their devices for financial transactions — to pay bills, check account balances, deposit checks and make purchases, according to the Federal Reserve Board’s “Consumers and Mobile Financial Services 2015″ survey.But mobile safety is still a big concern for many. The Federal Reserve Board found that more than half of consumers who don’t use mobile banking or mobile payments avoid making transactions with their phones because they’re worried about the technology’s security.It’s true that you can put your finances and personal information at risk when you use a smartphone. If you’re not careful, your accounts could be accessed, your credit card number could fall into the wrong hands or your identity could be stolen. It’s not a lack of mobile security, though, that’s creating these risks.“The general public is painfully unaware of their security,” said Robert Siciliano, an identity theft expert with BestIDTheftCompanys.com. “They’re aware of the issues but not aware of what to do.” It’s when smartphone users don’t take the proper steps to safeguard their devices and financial transactions that they lose money or are exploited, he said. continue reading » 39SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
