Power Of The Pack: Women Who Support Women Are More Successful

New research in the Harvard Business Review finds that while both men and women benefit from having a network of well-connected peers across different groups, women who also have an inner circle of close female contacts are more likely to land executive positions with greater authority and higher pay. http://ow.ly/oEi930o09M1

We need to reverse the stereotype that women don’t support other women. There is research that shows women in particular benefit from collaboration over competition. Here is advice from women leaders on how to find and cultivate a close network of female professionals.
