Last week I read an article online by Diana Middleton of the Wall Street Journal about a study of the difference in pay received by male and female MBAs. The study was conducted by Catalyst, a non-profit organization that works to create more opportunities for women in the workplace.

The first step to overcoming discrimination and inequality is awareness. I hope to see the day when these injustices are only a part of history.
