SWIM Speaker Series: Lunch with WSJ's Joann Lublin

E51-315

More than 50 executive women who broke the corporate glass ceiling offer surprising insights in an in-the-trenches career guide by Joann S. Lublin, a Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist for The Wall Street Journal. “Earning It: Hard-Won Lessons from Trailblazing Women at the Top of the Business World” aims to help women find success and deal with overt and subtle gender bias. 

The book contains chapters on topics ranging from coping strategies for career couples to dealing with pay disparities and developing executive presence.

During her campus visit, Ms. Lublin will share little-known tales from well-known chief executives such as General Motors’ Mary Barra, IBM's Ginni Rometty, Mondelez International’s Irene Rosenfeld and Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s Meg Whitman. They and other women leaders reveal how they got going, how they recovered from professional setbacks, and how they got ahead without sacrificing their personal lives. 

Ms. Lublin created the Journal’s first career column in 1993. “Your Executive Career,’’ her current advice column, appears every month. 

In 2003, Ms. Lublin was a member of a Journal team awarded the Pulitzer Prize in explanatory reporting for a series of stories that exposed corporate scandals, bringing them to life in compelling narratives In 2007, she was a finalist for a Loeb Award, the highest honor in business journalism. 

As management news editor for the Journal, Ms. Lublin now writes about issues such as executive compensation, corporate governance, recruiting and management succession.
