Dare to be Different

by Doug Wilson, Tue, 1/26/2016
What are you doing differently in 2016? It’s a great time to ask yourself the question. It's January in Chicago. We are forced to deal with the task of staying alive in a winter that should by all rights extinguish our species or at least force us south for a few months.

Gender Pay Disparity at Breakthrough Technologies

by Doug Wilson, Wed, 1/20/2016
Recently a topic has been circulating the national news about pay disparity in the United States between men and women. The number that seems generally agreed upon (if our statistically-inclined experts can ever agree upon anything) is about 79%. That is the percentage of a man’s salary that a woman receives in this country for doing the same job. It’s a pretty tough number to swallow - 21% pay difference. That’s like working a whole day every week for free, just because you are a woman.

What does this mean for you?
