)-- The Glass Hammer won the 2008 Blog of the Year from the Stevie Awards for Women in Business.
Nicki Gilmour, founder and CEO, who accepted the award on behalf of The Glass Hammer team at the awards ceremony, said of the honor:
“We are very proud of The Glass Hammer as we truly believe that we can help women navigate the obstacles to get to the corner office and have a great work-life balance. We aim to inform, empower and inspire women and our readership grows every week so we are happy to be formally recognized as a ‘must read’ blog on the internet.”
The Glass Hammer website is the only site of its kind, combining traditional publishing and new media approaches, the site invites readers to guest blog on the social network as well as having experts weigh in for some serious career advice.
“Winning the Stevie Women in Business Award for Blog of the Year is an achievement for all involved in The Glass Hammer. This is a reflection of teamwork and the sharing of experiences of all the women in the financial markets, law firms, and big business.”
Gilmour also thanked the founding sponsors of The Glass Hammer -PricewaterhouseCoopers and Goldman Sachs – stating that, “without progressive firms like these actually making changes in the workplace we would be writing about some mythical universe – an imagined utopia - instead of the reality of equality in the workplace which thankfully exists in some companies.”
