    Should Women Lean-In or Step-back?

    in Lifestyle

    We all have heard the buzz - Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook and author of Lean In:  Women, Work and the Will to Lead, admonishes women to believe in yourself, give it your all, "lean in" and "don't leave before you leave" - which is to say don't doubt your ability to combine work and family, thus edge yourself out of plum assignments before you even get it. Great point, right?  However, should career advancement be our primary goal?  Is this advice relevant to women juggling, husband, children, and a regular 9 to 5?  Or even better, single mothers with those same obligations?

    On Monday, December 9th, show host, Ola Jackson and our guest, Jennifer Keitt of The Jennifer Keitt Show, based in Atlanta, will examine whether this message is a relevant message for all women.  Should our message be “Lean In or Stand Back”?  

    Onyx Woman Magazine on the Air invites you to join the conversation.

    Direct Male - "Male Perspectives on Healthy Relationships"

    in Lifestyle

    Onyx Women Magazine On The Air has a new segment! Beginning Monday, November 25th we will air a monthly segment called Direct Male.

    Women often ask, "What do men think about fill in the blank?" We've wondered ourselves, but no more. During Direct Male, we will ask the opinions of male guests about a variety of topics. Send us your questions and we will put them in cue.

    Our first show guests are, Ahmad Sandidge, owner of Sandidge Photography, and Clyde Wilson Pickett, M.Ed., Educator, Diversity Professional, and Cultural Commentator. Our host, Ola Jackson will ask questions about Male Perspectives on Healthy Relationships.

    Ahmad Sandidge:  Mr. Sandidge decided at age 30 that he would no longer pursue money; but instead would pursue happiness. Ever since that day work, became his joy. He says, "I am blessed that I can make a living from what I would otherwise do for free."

    Clyde Wilson Pickett, M.Ed:  Mr. Pickett's work covers topics such as diversity, leadership development, cooperative communication, cultural competence, and civility. Mr. Pickett currently serves as the Special Assistant to the President for Diversity and Inclusion at the Community College of Allegheny County.

    Direct Male: Single Black Women's Net Worth $5 - What is the Plan?

    in Lifestyle

    Women of all races bring home less income and own fewer assets, on average, than men of the same race, but for single black women the disparities are so overwhelmingly great that even in their prime working years their median wealth amounts to only $5.

    A leading economic research group, social scientists turned a spotlight on the grave financial challenges facing an often overlooked group of women, many of whom could not take an unpaid sick day or repair a major appliance without going into debt.

    Join us on the radio, as our guests, Sam Stephenson, CPA – Partner with ParenteBeard and Howard Russell – Partner with Opus Acquisitions Group talk with Ola Jackson in this month’s Direct Male Segment.  We will discuss the study, putting into perspective and discuss practical steps to getting on track!
