EWGA introduces getAbstract as their newest supporting partner

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- The Executive Women's Golf Association (EWGA) introduces getAbstract as their newest Supporting Partner for 2014. getAbstract is a leading online media company, with a mission to find, expertly compress and provide universal access to critical business knowledge in a format that can be quickly and easily absorbed.

"It's been a groundbreaking year for women in business, and we are extremely proud to partner with an organization like the EWGA in developing aspiring business and professional women into successful executives," says Michel Koopman, CEO of getAbstract, Inc. "As women continue to make substantial progress in developing and advancing their careers and identifying the path to leadership, getAbstract and EWGA's goal is to bring together businesswomen from diverse industries and to help them grow as they face new challenges concurrent with the changes in their jobs or in the business world. We want to provide a supportive, learning environment that helps women become stronger businesswomen."

getAbstract is the resource that business executives and professionals consult to stay competitive. Business people rely on the getAbstract business book summaries and finance summaries to acquire the knowledge they need to manage their companies more efficiently and more successfully. Written by a world-class editorial team, each five-page summary is compressed into informative, concise summaries that are logically structured to get the maximum value out of your reading time.

"EWGA is dedicated to enriching the lives of women; and learning business and leadership skills is central to our community," says Pam Swensen, Chief Executive Officer for EWGA. "getAbstract provides a great solution to master business topics in an efficient manner that serves as great dialogue in business building relationships both on and off the course. We look forward to providing access through getAbstract's services to our members who are seeking new business knowledge or complementing their current business acumen."

EWGA's role in nurturing and developing talent goes a long way in promoting a positive image of the successful woman that addresses the stereotypes. As Sheryl Sandberg pointed out in "Lean in" and her TED Talk, there are "too few women leaders." In today's large organization, as women climb up the corporate ladder they dwindle in numbers with women represented in only 14% of C suite positions.

"Given the crucial role of women in our global economic system - and given the hurdles too many women still face in the business world - we have made the access to compressed knowledge a priority," says Koopman. "By investing in the success of women, we invest in our own success and in the success of communities around the world."

As the 2014 golf season ramps up, the EWGA and getAbstract will launch their partnership at Empower '14, EWGA's International Conference in San Antonio, TX in early April.
