Publish Date/Time:

Professor Douglas Branson’s commentary on Sheryl Sandberg’s new book “Lean In” appeared in the March 19 Wall Street Journal online.  Professor Branson noted that “[p]rogress in promoting women [to senior management positions} has been made."  He further noted that “parity – in child rearing, householding, or in climbing the corporate ladder – does not exist and, strictly speaking, isn’t necessary to continue to make inroads, as Ms. Sandberg intimates.”
