ATLANTA, Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- LittlePINKBook.com, Stevie® Award finalist for the second straight year and the No. 1 digital platform for career women, will host its 8th Annual Fall Empowerment Event on Nov. 13, 2012. Professional women will have a chance to meet top-level female executives in person -- or watch live via streamed video online -- and find out what they say companies should do to support women's advancement.
Since LittlePINKBook.com held its first Fall Empowerment Event nearly eight years ago, the percentage of female Fortune 500 CEOs has grown only about 2 percent. How do the few women in top jobs get there? What price must she really pay to work in a top job at America's biggest companies?
