Escape from the work jungle with your GirlsNight Work Girls!
You work hard for your pay. Studies show women, on average, are still striving to get equal footing in top management positions compared to men. But, take a lesson from the many existing female CEOs: You can do it! Perseverance, dedication and performing strategically in political matters can help.
In the meantime....enjoy the women around you. Sometimes the best friendships can result from working together. On the other hand, be careful. It's still a working environment -- and you may not be able to trust everyone.
Here are some tips for you to enjoy your Work-Girls GirlsNight and still maintain your good-standing professional relationships.
Don't Drink Too Much. Keep your alcohol consumption to a mild or moderate level. You'll be guaranteed there won't be any alcohol rumors about you the next day.
Don't Gossip. Do you really know the person you're gossiping to doesn't know the person you're gossiping about?
Don't Criticize Your Boss. He/She may not be there, but some coworkers love to share.
Don't Go Wild for Men. This is not the time to show everyone how attracted the opposite sex is to you.
Don't "OverShare". Do you think it's really a good idea to discuss your boyfriend's worst habits with workers who may "overshare" your information at work the next day. You want to be known for your good work performance, not your man problems.
Do Be Kind to Everyone Tonight. It's best for you professionally to get along with everyone. So, even if a Work-Girl is there whom you don't like; be kind to her. You might even end up liking her better at the end of a GirlsNight.
Do Get to Know the Girls. This is a great opportunity to know someone better -- outside of a work situation. Who knows, a good friendship may result.
Do Have Fun! It is still a GirlsNight. Relax, enjoy the GirlTalk, enjoy your surroundings, enjoy the moment...before you know it, you'll be back in the office...so live tonight!

This means that women’s voices are still not heard equally in the decisions that most affect our lives. In Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg examines why women’s progress in achieving leadership roles has stalled, explains the root causes, and offers compelling, commonsense solutions that can empower women to achieve their full potential.
Sandberg is the chief operating officer of Facebook and is ranked on Fortune’s list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business and as one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People in the World....more
