Book of Interest—Dig Your Heels In

Should you stay or go?

Despite an increasing focus on gender discrimination, women continue to be frustrated when seeking achievement in the corporate world. Millennial women, in particular, are fleeing corporations to go their own way. It’s something Joan Kuhl has been thinking about for a long time. She’s built a reputation as a major figure in the world of women’s empowerment. Now she’s written this book to encourage women (unless they are in toxic work situations) to stay in their company and work from the inside to make it more inclusion and supportive.

While she provides lots of examples of women who have managed to make changes in their work places, this is primarily a book about taking action. She offers readers specific advice, explicit examples, scripted responses, and scenario-based strategies. Her action plan includes a close look at self-limiting behaviors that help hold women back and the need to create networks that tackle systemic barriers to women’s advancement with group action.

We’ve seen Lean In, #metoo, and Melinda Gates encouraging women’s initiatives around the world. Now it’s time for a serious movement to start unlocking company doors at all levels of employment. This book provides the game plan for those who are ready. SHOP FOR THE BOOK.
