How to deal with condescending colleagues
Stay calm and positive when dealing with someone who is regularly condescending to you, Lea McLeod writes. Use a professional tone to address the person's comments, and avoid body language such as crossed arms and pointed fingers. If you're feeling defensive, it might be best to temporarily let the matter lie.

Job seekers who submit online applications should make sure their resumes contain relevant keywords, keep their LinkedIn profiles up to date and be prepared to revisit their resumes if they aren't getting any responses, experts say. "If you have applied to 200 jobs and aren’t hearing back, then you need to change your strategy," said Paul D'Arcy, an executive at Indeed.com.

Shrinking the gender gap could increase US GDP by $2.1 trillion by 2025, McKinsey Global Institute has found. If the gender gap were eliminated, GDP would rise by $4.3 trillion. McKinsey previously noted that at full gender equality, the global economy would gain $28 trillion in GDP.
