  • Boss Lady

    While more and more women at the executive level are cracking—and shattering—the glass ceiling, there’s still room for improvement. Witness the Fortune 500 list. In 2018, only 24 women chief executive officers led these major companies. That number was down from 2017’s record-breaking 32 female CEOs in the Fortune 500—a drop from 6.4 percent to 4.8 percent. The list has been published every year since 1955, but only noted top executives’ gender for the past decade. It’s anyone’s guess what the female chief executive percentage was previously. However, the trend for women in top leadership locally is moving steadily upward, according to some North Bay staffing and executive recruiting firms.

  • High Heels In Hard Hats

    The sight of women in hard hats on construction sites or kneeling on rooftops was once unthinkable. Not so long ago, their position in the building trades was strictly limited to the office, while hands-on occupations and leadership were the exclusive domain of men. Today, though, women are proving that they’re more than up to the task of running successful construction companies, where they demonstrate that knowledge, skills and business savvy matter more than gender.

  • Leading The Way

    Workplace mental health issues cost the global economy a staggering $3 trillion annually. It’s the most significant employee health-related expense, and double that of cardiovascular disease and diabetes combined. Yet this crisis of high cost and human suffering has largely gone unrecognized—though this is changing. What’s not so surprising, California is taking the lead. The private sector and the state government have rallied, and measures are being implemented to address this crisis.

  • Rebuilding: Sonoma County Housing Sites

    Take a spin through Santa Rosa’s Coffey Park neighborhood and you’ll see what recovery and resiliency look like. Efforts to rebuild thousands of lost homes have ramped up to full speed in some areas of Sonoma County, with scenes of devastation from the Tubbs fire––and other fires that destroyed homes in the county in October 2017––quickly disappearing as new structures rise from the ashes.

  • Saving The Planet

    Recycling is a way of life for most people. And we feel good that the paper coffee cup, the plastic water bottle, the bags, the papers and the packaging that comes into the house daily can go straight to the curbside bin and disappear into the afterlife of the recycled. So, it’s shocking and horrifying to read about masses of plastics killing wildlife and appearing even in the deepest ocean trenches. We dutifully do our recycling, so statistics about America’s landfills approaching capacity certainly doesn’t apply to us. Does it? Doesn’t all our excess go on to China, or some other country, where they are happy to keep our recyclers in business?

  • Dairy Dilemma

      Cows grazing along hillsides and in seaside meadows are a picturesque and familiar sight in Marin and Sonoma counties. Dairy farms have been a local presence for more than 100 years, but these days, the picture behind the scenes is far from idyllic. In many areas across the United States, the dairy industry is in distress, and farms are facing challenges. Chief among them are low selling prices, competition from alternate-dairy products and consumer demand for non-dairy products made from plants.

The Mutt of the Wine World

When it comes to dogs, I’ve always been a mutt lover. Gravitating to those adoring mix-breed hounds with grateful eyes, perfect temperament and always-be-wagging tails. This choice has been an instinctual one, that was less about settling and more about one-of-a-kind originality. Decades of pet ownership later, my stance on blended breeds remains unchanged. As for my wine drinking preferences, the same tendency has not always applied.
