May 16th, 2011
In his recently published blog, Laurent Blanchard, Managing Director of CISCO France, highlights some of the key messages in Avivah Wittenberg-Cox’s new book HOW Women Mean Business (published in French as Mixité dans l’entreprise, mode d’emploi).
As a leader in one of the world’s major technology companies, he is particularly interested in Avivah Wittenberg-Cox’s analysis of how technology can facilitate women’s career progression today.
“In particular, [Avivah Wittenberg-Cox] shows what a major role technology can play in female careers today. Already, networks and telecommuting are helping some notable female executives to manage their professional and family responsibilities. Gender balance will be more and linked to connectivity.”
