2016 Career News for Young Working WomenHappy Almost 2018! We realize that many of you may not have time to click on all (or maybe any) of the links in each week’s Weekly News Update, so we’ve gathered some of the most notable or memorable stories that we highlighted during the past year, organized by topic. Readers: Tell us some of your favorite news stories that were relevant to overachieving chicks during 2017 (whether we covered them or not)?

Interesting Stories on Work Fashion

  • The Atlantic took a stab at why workwear went from suits and ties to, well, just about anything as long as there isn’t “too much skin.”
  • The Work Uniform: The Washingtonian talked to Renata Briggman, who adopted a work uniform to avoid having to decide what to wear: “she wears black slacks, black shoes, a grey blazer and a white shirt. Every. Single. Day.” Along similar lines, Business Insider shared how a work uniform can streamline your routine — and Fast Company provided six women’s work uniforms to save time and energy when getting ready in the morning.
  • Bored Panda told the story of 63-year-old Fordham professor Lyn Slater, who was mistaken for a fashion celeb during New York Fashion Week and now works as a model with Elite London. (Love this story!)
  • Racked shared where to find “nude” lingerie for all skintones.
  • Huffington Post shared Chelsea Clinton’s response to comments about her favorite pair of scuffed-up pumps.
  • Here are the 2016 Award Winning Undies as voted by the customers of HerRoom (affiliate link).
  • The Atlantic told the lesser-known history of the little black dress.
  • The Huffington Post reported that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan announced plans to update the decades-old House dress code after its recent criticisms — and the The New York Times shared readers’ responses to its article about “appropriate” work attire.

Career-Related News of Note

  • Love this: A Forbes contributor shared the “Court Lobster Strategy” as a way to gain confidence and head off imposter syndrome.
  • Wired told you how to erase files and back up what you need when you leave a job.
  • Quartz listed three strategies to combat sexist interruptions; meanwhile, Fortune explained how to cut down on “manterrupting”: by avoiding starting questions with “‘sorry,’ ‘may I ask,’ ‘can I ask,’ ‘excuse me,’ or by addressing [someone] by name” and using a more aggressive style. Meanwhile, The Daily Dot defined the new term “he-peating” as when a woman’s idea gets shut down and “a male colleague not only repeats this same idea, he gets credit for it.” (Ad may autoplay.)
  • Quartz offered 10 CEOs’ top interview questions and tests for prospective employees. Have you heard any of these before?
  • Harvard Business Review looked at the downsides of being recognized as a star performer and “future leader” at work.
  • U.S. News noted that “76 percent of hiring managers believe that ‘being interesting’ is the most crucial quality they look for when interviewing to fill a new position.”
  • Ms. JD shared how a lawyer stood her ground in court, even after opposing counsel and the clerk told her she looked like a 12-year-old girl.

Feminism/Rawr News

(This is by no means a complete compendium even of our coverage of all of the many, many stories that made 2017’s word of the year “feminism” — these are just some of the ones that jumped out as being memorable or made me click on them again.)

  • There were one or two stories this year about sexual harassment allegations — maybe you saw them? Dahlia Lithwick at Slate shared how she felt complicit in some way with regards to Ninth Circuit judge Alex Kozinski,  Lindy West opined in the The New York Times on why “we have all been seething, in our various states of breaking open or, as [Uma] Thurman chooses, waiting,” and Bustle asked whether the heroes of several popular romantic movies were actually sexually harassing the heroines.
  • Slate rounded up some of the best signs from the Women’s March — but didn’t include Kat’s favorite.
  • Gosh, it’s hard to believe that #ShePersisted just started in 2017 – Huffington Post had the details.
  • “Dear Lady”: The Atlantic featured rejection letters from the Society of Women Engineers archive; meanwhile, Above the Law shared a Biglaw memo from 1956 that explains how to deal with “Lady Lawyers,” aka “girls.”
  • Harvard Business Review shared the results of a series of studies involving mock resumes sent to law firms. They found that “elite employers discriminate strongly based on social class, favoring applicants from higher-class backgrounds [and that] coming from an advantaged social background helps only men.”
  • Fast Company told the story of two women entrepreneurs who had better luck getting investors after they created a fake male cofounder.
  • Readers recently discussed a Harvard Gazette article, “The Internal Marriage Tax of Women M.B.A.s,” that was shared in the comments.
  • The Hill suspected the Swedish climate minister was trolling certain people with an all-women photo, and Forbes rounded up the best working women’s responses to #DressLikeAWoman campaign.
  • This was also an epic year for recognition of the invisible labor that women often bear – this comic by the French artist Emma had a fresh look at why women tend to be the “manager of household chores.” (We’ve also talked about the “default parent” problem over on CorporetteMoms quite a bit, from how to ask for help from your partner to how to avoid being the only one thinking about the little things (i.e. share the emotional labor).)

Lifestyle Advice for Overachieving Chicks

  • Thought Catalog had some good tips for true self-care—beyond salt baths and chocolate cake.
  • The Everygirl provided 20 recipes you can prep on Sunday for healthy meals you’ll want to eat the rest of the week, and BuzzFeed rounded up 11 lazy, er, quick and easy (and tasty!) recipes from food bloggers.
  • In its “Money Diaries” series, Refinery29 featured a finance VP with a salary off $230K.
  • Need motivation for a 2018 workout routine? Politico shared Justice Ginsburg’s personal trainer’s tips (the Notorious R.B.G. is pretty strong!).
  • May you never need them, but: these suggestions from Tip Hero may help you survive a work shooting.

Articles and Posts We’re Still Laughing Over

  • Thumb typing school, you guys: The Huffington Post had the deets on this viral Facebook post (about being interrupted by a man who offered to be her mentor, even though he had zero relevant experience that would benefit her writing career or, uh, probably anyone’s career) and it was awesome. (Appropriately enough, she was reading Men Explain Things To Me at the time.)
  • Don’t miss Prince William dancing like a dork, from Jezebel.
  • The Onion recreated TJ Maxx’s shopping experience online. Meanwhile, McSweeney’s offered retail-therapy suggestions for a variety of unpleasant thoughts.
  • Pajiba rounded up some amusing reactions to Ivanka Trump’s new book.
  • Drowned in moonlight, strangled by her bra: New York magazine’s The Cut collected some of Carrie Fisher’s best quotes, and BuzzFeed rounded up some tweets paying tribute to her.
  • Having a yucky week? This isn’t funny but it is uplifting: The Huffington Post has a firsthand account of how Dr. Mary-Claire King survived what could have been her worst week ever—or at least the plot of a sad country song—and how it led to the project that became BRCA1.

Want more? Here’s our news roundup from 2016.
