Women in PPC: The Good, The Bad, and The Beautiful

Women in PPC: The Good, The Bad, and The Beautiful

Posted by: on Aug 13, 2014 | No Comments

When I was a kid, I was really into basketball. So, when I was around 5 or 6 my parents signed me up for YMCA basketball. My team was…terrible. I don’t recall our record, but I’m pretty sure we finished 8th out of 10 teams. Come the end of the season, however, I left with a trophy. Even at this age, I apparently asked my dad why I was getting a trophy. We finished 8th for pete’s sake! To this day, neither my dad nor I can remember what his response was, but I’m sure it was mostly along the lines of, “Good question. I’m really not sure.” We’ll get back to this later. Promise.

Contrary to the title, this isn’t a post evaluating the skills and beauty of the prominent women in PPC. That would be worthless as beauty is subjective and all of the PPC women are amazingly talented. What this post is about is the current “movement” or discussions about women having a bigger share of voice in the PPC industry. My opinions on this topic (women in business, in general) have been around for a while, but I didn’t think to write about them until the discussion made it’s way to our industry.
