COLONIE — The culture at work matters, Dawn Abbuhl, Ph.D., president and cofounder of Repeat Business Systems, told an audience of nearly 100 women Wednesday at the Times Union's Hearst Media Center. "Our culture [at Repeat Business Systems] is helping each other ... doing what your heart tells you to do," she said, adding that her company should run efficiently so "we have a lot to give."
One recent afternoon, a mother and two teenagers made their way through Her Treasure Box, an arts and crafts thrift store, in Schenectady. "She looked older than her age, worn and weary," said Debbie Fowler, founder of Eyes Wide Open NENY, a nonprofit for which Her Treasure Box serves as both home base and a revenue stream. "Although she [had] many tattoos, I noticed the tattoo on her neck indicating she had been branded," Fowler said.
As an office manager at an insurance agency in the late 1970s, Sue Donovan attended a business dinner with the president and owner of the firm. He had a little too much to drink, asked Donovan to drive him home, and made "sexual advances" toward her, she recalled. The next morning at work, the owner told Donovan he had a relationship with the woman who preceded her and “Either you go along with that relationship like what I had with her or you’re done,” she remembered.
"There are too many voiceless women in this world already. For you to sit here and have a seat at the table, and not use your voice...is a tragedy." -- Nathaalie Carey, DOL's deputy commissioner of administration and CFO https://t.co/xi3HYrFNb9

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
