Piercing the Glass Ceiling

ALBANY, N.Y. (Nov. 29, 2016) — Joann Lublin, the management news editor of The Wall Street Journal, will be at Page Hall at the Downtown Campus at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 6, to talk about women making it in the world of business.

Joann Lublin

The appearance is sponsored by the New York State Writers Institute, UAlbany’s School of Business and the Times Union’s Capital Region Women@Work. The School of Business is also sponsoring a reception with Lublin at 4:15 p.m. in the Massry Center for Business alumni, faculty, staff and students.

Lublin is the 2007 finalist for business journalism’s highest award — the Loeb Award — and co-recipient of a 2003 Pulitzer Prize for a series of corporate scandal exposés. Her Page Hall appearance will combine a reading and discussion of her new book, Earning It: Hard-Won Lessons from Trailblazing Women at the Top of the Business World (2016), which combines the story of her own career struggles with the stories of more than 50 women who have reached the highest rungs of the corporate ladder.

The book profiles women trailblazers who have become leaders in such companies as Hewlett-Packard, Yahoo, Hearst Magazine, Avon, Sara Lee, Campbell Soup and Ogilvy & Mather. Lublin began working for The Wall Street Journal in 1971 and covered labor issues, housing and urban affairs before being named news editor of the London bureau in 1988, the first time a Journal bureau was run by woman. She started writing the career advice columns for the paper in 1993.

Her talk is free and open to the public.
