Every now and then I find a great article that takes a sightly different perspective or slant on solving an old problem. Gender equality is an old problem. I like the more masculine appraoch that this author takes to tackling biases.

Research finds we are still 100 years away from gender equality in the C-suite. That's unacceptable.
It is now more than three years since Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook, wrote her ground-breaking book, Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead. “Lean In,” I believe, is shorthand for “Go for it, if you want it.”
In her book, Sandberg acknowledges that there are many systemic obstacles to the advancement of women in corporate America. However, her focus is what women can do to maximize their chance of success in spite of these obstacles.
Well, more and more women are leaning in. That includes applying for leadership positions and/or negotiating for more equitable compensation.
