More About Stiletto Network by Pamela Ryckman
 
 
 
Overview
More women are running major companies than ever before. While still far too few in number, these female heads of industry are the forerunners of a radical shift in power now underway. During the past few years, women's groups have been coalescing in every major American city. Formidable ladies across professions are convening at unprecedented rates, forming salons, dinner groups, and networking circles--and collaborating to achieve clout and success. A new girls' network is alive and set to hyperdrive.

Stiletto Network is about those groups: the "Power Bitches," "Brazen Hussies" and "S.L.U.T.S.: Successful Ladies Under Tremendous Stress." It's about what happens when bright, extraordinary women--from captains of industry to aspiring entrepreneurs--come together to celebrate and unwind, debate and compare notes. But it's also about what happens when they leave the table, when the talking stops and the action starts. It's about how they mine their collective intelligence to realize their dreams or champion a cause, how they lift up their friends and push them forward, how they join forces to ensure each woman gets what she needs--be it information, an introduction, a partnership, or a landmark deal.

This is the first book to shed light on this groundbreaking movement. Sharing story after story of women banding together to help other women, Stiletto Network is both a call to action and an inside look at a better way of doing business.

For some time, the “old-boy network” has been an acknowledged way for men to get things done in business, and the doors to many men’s clubs were long closed to women trying to make it in the working world. Things have changed. Not only are women making strides in business, they are forging their own exclusive support systems, which journalist Ryckman calls “stiletto networks.” In this engaging debut, Ryckman goes behind the scenes with some of today’s most powerful female movers and shakers, sharing how they are forming all-girl salons, throwing dinners at their homes, and mingling outside board rooms to advance their careers, raise capital, and support each other personally and professionally. Among others, the author profiles notable business veterans like Silicon Valley venture capitalist Heidi Roizen, leadership coach Carol Hyatt, Oxygen Media’s Geraldine Layborne, and dynamos like Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and Gilt Group founder Susan Lynde. In an upbeat tone and energetic style, we learn how these successful women are coming together in intimate groups, where they embrace fashion, capital structures, and deals. Emboldening, encouraging, and entertaining, this book is essential reading for any woman who wishes to further her career while remaining true to herself.
