Sylvia Ann Hewlett and Cornel West call for a Parents' Bill of Rights that gives new value and dignity to the parental role and restores our nation's commitment to the well-being of children. Hewlett and West show how for thirty years big business, government, and the wider culture have waged a silent war against parents. We live in a nation where market work, centered on profits and greed, increasingly crowds out nonmarket work, centered on commitment and care+-+34164304858988ocn076820752book20070.29Hewlett, Sylvia AnnOff-ramps and on-ramps : keeping talented women on the road to successCase studiesExamines the impact that a leave to care for children or elderly parents has on the career of professional women and proposes strategies that companies can undertake to retain and reintegrate talented female employees+-+47565677967592ocn049497560book20020.27Hewlett, Sylvia AnnCreating a life : professional women and the quest for children"Sylvia Ann Hewlett, the acclaimed author of When the Bough Breaks: The Cost of Neglecting Our Children, tackles one of the most wrenching challenges for women today - creating rich multidimensional lives that contain both career and children." "Almost half of all professional women are childless at age forty. The more a woman succeeds in her career, the less likely it is that she will have a partner or a baby. For men the opposite is true: the more successful a man is professionally, the more likely it is that he will be married with children." "Hewlett brings to the book her substantial expertise as a policy analyst and her own difficult experiences of pregnancy and motherhood. Combining poignant and compelling portraits of women's lives with a groundbreaking survey commissioned specifically for this book, she gives voice to women's hopes and anguish and unearths stunning new information. For example, 42 percent of women in corporate America are childless at age forty (compared to 25 percent of men), but only 14 percent planned to be. Hewlett's research reveals a host of circumstances that have conspired to produce brutal trade-offs in the lives of professional women: America's long-hours corporate culture, a stubbornly traditional division of labor at home, and a fertility industry that lulls women into a false sense that they can get pregnant deep into middle age."--BOOK JACKET+-+81121313255939ocn005892193book19800.56Hewlett, Sylvia AnnThe cruel dilemmas of development : twentieth-century Brazil5706ocn010996237book19840.70The Global repercussions of U.S. monetary and fiscal policy5348ocn007944726book19810.66Brazil and Mexico : patterns in late development5103ocn014069631book19860.66Family and work : bridging the gap3545ocn826444672book20130.21Hewlett, Sylvia Ann(Forget a mentor) find a sponsor : the new way to fast-track your careerWho's pulling for you? Who's got your back? Who's putting your hat in the ring? Odds are this person is not a mentor but a sponsor. Mentors can build your self-esteem and provide a sounding board--but they're not your ticket to the top. If you're interested in fast-tracking your career, what you need is a sponsor--a senior-level champion who believes in your potential and is willing to advocate for you as you pursue that next raise or promotion3458ocn701019426book20110.59Hewlett, Sylvia AnnWinning the war for talent in emerging markets : why women are the solution+-+75151677962725ocn047297588book20010.77Hewlett, Sylvia AnnTaking parenting public : the case for a new social movementTaking Parenting Public makes a compelling case that parenting has become dangerously undervalued in America today. It calls for a new investment-both personal and public-into the work of raising children and argues that we are all 'stockholders' in the next generation. With a foreword by Sylvia Ann Hewlett and Cornel West, Taking Parenting Public crosses boundaries to bring together thinkers from diverse fields spanning the political spectrum.

More importantly, do others perceive you to be? Sylvia Ann Hewlett, a noted expert on workplace power and influence, shows you how to identify and embody the Executive Presence (EP) that you need to succeed. You can have the experience and qualifications of a leader, but without executive presence, you won't advance. EP is an amalgam of qualities that true leaders exude, a presence that telegraphs you're in charge or deserve to be. Articulating those qualities isn't easy, however. Based on a nationwide survey of college graduates working across a range of sectors and occupations, Sylvia Hewlett and the Center for Talent Innovation discovered that EP is a dynamic, cohesive mix of appearance, communication, and gravitas. While these elements are not equal, to have true EP, you must know how to use all of them to your advantage. Filled with eye-opening insights, analysis, and practical advice for both men and women, mixed with illustrative examples from executives learning to use the EP, Executive Presence will help you make the leap from working like an executive to feeling like an executive."--Publisher's description1874ocn317453401book20090.59Hewlett, Sylvia AnnTop talent : keeping performance up when business is downTop Talent: Keeping Your Best People When You Need Them+-+87959677961125ocn030329852book19930.39Hewlett, Sylvia AnnChild neglect in rich nationsCross-cultural studies1076ocn048680124book20020.24Hewlett, Sylvia AnnBaby hunger : the new battle for motherhoodPÅ grundlag af nyere undersøgelser i USA og England belyser forfatteren de problemer kvinder har med at kombinere karriere og moderskab og hun fremlægger mulige løsningsmodeller875ocn078219347file19990.13Hewlett, Sylvia AnnThe war against parents what we can do for America's beleaguered moms and dadsAuthors Hewlett and West aver that "big business, government, and the wider culture have waged a silent war against parents, undermining the work that they do" and that "parents have been left twisting in the wind by a society intent on other agendas."+-+8566061325324631ocn054005457book20030.23Hewlett, Sylvia AnnCreating a life : what every woman needs to know about having a baby and a career+-+7584086596424ocn879328406rcrd20140.15Hewlett, Sylvia AnnExecutive presence : the missing link between merit and successAre you "leadership material?"
