Work Place Inequality - From Top to Bottom, Companies Still Not Hiring Women

A new report from the Los Angeles Business Examiner reveals that corporations are seeing less and less women in boardrooms than ever before.  New studies published show that about 10% of executives are women.  The  study cited in this report shows that the demographic of these companies generally reflect the boardroom.  This is based on about 400 companies in California only.

The ranks of women in corporate executive suites and board rooms remain thin, even as research shows that companies with more women at the top perform better financially and might be more socially responsible.

That’s according to a study of California women business leaders released Thursday by the Graduate School of Management at the University of California Davis.

Women hold only about one out of every 10 top management and board positions — precisely 10.6 percent — in California’s largest 400 firms, according to the fifth annual Study of California Women Business Leaders.  That ratio has remained pretty consistent over the five years that the Graduate School has been studying the issue.

CNBC's "Porn: Business of Pleasure"

Porn.

Talk to anyone about it and you will find an opinion.  Good.  Bad.  Whatever.  For every reason is a personal opinion.  CNBC does a nice job of looking at the industry and trying to size up its impact, design, marketing and overall health as a business model.  This show aired two nights ago and is available now on Hulu.

Kathee Brewer did a nice write up on this show, over at ynot.com:

Estimated to generate more than $13 billion in annual revenue, the adult entertainment industry long was thought to be recession-proof. However, the internet and other technologies have eroded some of the industry’s traditional economic stability, and porn now seems to be suffering along with every other business during the current global downturn.

“The porn industry has changed technology and can be found in millions of homes, hotel rooms and hard drives across the country,” according to an announcement at CNBC.com. “BUT, the business is facing economic challenges. It’s under assault, and not just from the many critics who see it as socially corroding, degrading to women and a risk to the young.” 

If you would like to understand the business of porn / adult content in greater detail, then this show is a good resource.  If you are looking for an affirmation of why porn is either good or bad, then it may not be so useful to you.
