Ruth Bramson, CEO of Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts, Honored

The Boston Business Journal reports that as a single mother of three daughters for a good chunk of her professional career, Ruth Bramson knew firsthand the challenges facing working women. In fact, she wrote her master’s thesis at Boston University on the topic: How companies can provide a better work/life balance for women. “It’s really disheartening, with all the focus on women’s issues, that there is still such an imbalance of women in top management positions,” she said. Bramson’s own success in the workplace and managing that difficult work/life balance made her an ideal choice to lead the newly resurgent Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts.

Ruth Bramson was recently honored alongside June Rokoff, of the Commonwealth Institute and Linda Whitlock, head of The Whitlock Group and former president and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston at The Boston Business Journal's Advancing Women breakfast.
