Meeting Notes

Meeting Notes is a weekly feature. Here we will dish on tidbits, news, and important things we thinking Working Girls should know. So scroll down to hear what we think you should glean from this work week.
  • Former Rachel Zoe Inc. employee, Taylor Jacobson, made it seem as though she was just moving on her career when she left Rachel Zoe for greener pastures this past year. But Page Six reported today that Jacobson was supposedly fired after a fight over designer clothes disappearing from the closet. [NY Mag]
  • Abbott, Aetna, American Express, and General Mills are just four of the top five named to the top 50 companies for executive women in America. At the companies in the NAFE Top 50, women fill key positions that matter: 23 percent of board seats and 26 percent of the P&L positions. [NAFE]

I doubt Taylor was fired over a few pairs of missing seemed like a long time coming. She was always taking care of business while Brad was off to play. It'll be interesting to see what she does next. After all, people who get fired tend to end up being ever more *fab* than before! (At least that's what I'm telling myself these days!)

Whoa, that's crazy about Taylor. She always did have a bad attitude.
