Shaken and Stirred, Women Leaving (Wall Street) Finance

Post to Twitter

Margo Epprecht on “The Real Reason Women Are Leaving Wall Street: Gentlemen Prefer Bonds.” Title cute, reasons not. But they’re also pretty predictable: a lot of sexism, along with the long hours, the financial crisis that caused many people to rethink their priorities, and the preferences many women tend to make for home and family. In 2013, would bringing more women back to Wall Street change the ethical and management dynamics of the place? It’s certainly up for discussion. Very interesting read.
