Top 12 Tips for Career Growth
Barbara Roberts was not phased a bit by her designation as closing keynote (or closing 'notes') speaker at Women in CE's career-enhancement forum on June 26. This is a woman whose life's passion has been to ensure that "women receive a fair share of the political and economical pie."
She staged her first "sit-in" in second grade, rallying for the right for girls to carry the American flag. And she's the woman who involuntarily coined the phrase "glass ceiling" when, during an interview for the New York Times, she mentioned that she felt like there was a glass ceiling and that it had been broken.
And she's the woman who began working on Wall St. just three years after "Help Wanted: Men" and "Help Wanted: Women" signs had ceased appearing, only to cause a raucous when using the "male" staircase instead of the one assigned for females.
