Womenomics: New Ways for Women to Aim for the Top

"She was across the street from where her twins were, at Children's hospital," Heenan explained. "She was there when she needed to be. She had new support in the lab. And now that male supervisor or lab director is one of the biggest proponents in the medical school for that kind of work, for how to help people during certain seasons of their research career in this case, have it work for them during that period of time.

For Binder, an executive, a mom, and a flextime convert, this type of "Womenomics" revolution is inevitable, and welcome.

"I would say the world we live in is about change and the change isn't only getting to the top, it's making the work environment different," she said. "We have the responsibility and we have the power today to create a very different environment. And if we don't do it, nobody will."
