Just wanted to share a TED talk. Sheryl Sandberg (COO of Facebook) summarizes her view on why there are too few women leaders and suggestions to change that. In brief, 1) believe in yourself, 2) don't "leave" before you leave, 3) make your partner a real partner.
Here's a great peer mentorship idea especially for women with careers. Thanks to Jim Austin, Editor of Science Careers, for bringing it our attention.
