Women helping women is the best way for us to get ahead.
Now the science backs this up. A new study tracked 700 MBA students as they made it into leadership positions, analyzing the make-up of their social network. The finding? 75% of high ranking women had strong ties to a female-dominated inner circle.
If you combined this female domination with a wide network, women saw 2.5x greater job placement level than those with a male-dominated small network.
So right now, shoot off an email to schedule coffee (or a hangout date) with a female powerhouse you love. It might be the most valuable thing you do for your career today.
