It's been my experience that women who work with us have great marriages, are able to balance work and home life, and are significant wage earners. So far, their career strides haven't affected their marriages. Now, no one ever knows what goes on behind closed doors, but I've observed plenty of women executives in the halls of Brownstein Group over the years, successfully juggling the dynamics of their lives. At our agency, we celebrate motherhood by throwing surprise baby showers.

What really startles me is thinking what our agencies would be like if we couldn't attract and keep women executives who are married and have children. Walk through the halls of any agency today -- it's not the boys' club that used to exist in the 60's at (my alma mater) Ogilvy & Mather. Agencies today are staffed with mostly women. In fact, my public relations division recently hired a guy, and people celebrated, because we needed the diversity. Imagine that.
