A Refreshing View on Gender and the Workplace

I wanted to stand up and cheer after reading this exchange in the Wall Street Journal between an interviewer and Lauralee Martin, chief of Americas at the commercial real estate giant Jones Lang LaSalle:

WSJ:  Real-estate brokerage traditionally has been a male-dominated business.  How do you think you could help other women at JLL succeed as you have?

Ms. Martin:  I will have to say that I haven’t personally spent a lot of time thinking about gender, and maybe that is why I have done well.

Bravissimo, Ms. Martin!
