About the book:

"Nothing has transformed the business world in the past forty years more than the women who entered it," writes A. Mikaelian in the introduction to Women Who Mean Business. In the pages that follow, freelance writer Mikaelian offers a revealing look at these female pioneers through profiles of 75 who have broken through the so-called glass ceiling in nearly every field of corporate endeavor. Each sketch opens with enlightening yearbook-type data, such as work history, education, associations and networks, community service, mentors and influences, and greatest obstacles overcome. Following these are brief narrative biographies that detail the subjects' business histories and philosophies. The women, drawn from every state in the U.S. and several Canadian provinces, include Mary Jean Connors, Knight Ridder senior vice president of human resources; Anna Garcia, president of ANKO Metal Services; Brenda J. Culpepper, PepperCo Music Group president; Rebecca Graham Paul, president and chief executive office of Georgia Lottery Corporation; and Phyllis J. Campbell, president of U.S. Bank Washington. "As the last generation that faced a male-dominated workforce," Mikaelian concludes, "their lives are a record of that time and an inspiration to anyone who is building a career." --Howard Rothman
