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.
  • TV network Oxygen compiled info from a survey they took of 1600 social media users between the ages of 18-35 and found that two thirs of women surveyed use Facebook as a career networking tool. [The Register]
  • The United Nations general assembly has unamiously voted to approve UN Women. This off-shoot of the UN will focus completely on issues surrounding women of the world and will launch in January 2011. [Jezebel]
  • Unemployed women in the Netherlands are being offered a £1,150 fashion and beauty makeover and membership to a dating agency to help them find a wealthy husband. The theme is being offered by three councils in Friesland in the hopes that they will save on welfare payments if these women meet wealthy husbands. [Daily Mail]
