Reseña #24 | Own It: The Power of Women at Work - Sally Krawcheck (ingles)
RELEASE: Jan 17th, 2017
CATEGORY: Business & Economics - Women In Business
PUBLISHED BY: Crown Business
A Wall Street Journal and Washington Post Bestseller, Own It is a new kind of career playbook for a new era of feminism, offering women a new set of rules for professional success: one that plays to their strengths and builds on the power they already have.
Weren’t women supposed to have “arrived”? Perhaps with the nation’s first female President, equal pay on the horizon, true diversity in the workplace to come thereafter? Or, at least the end of “fat-shaming” and “locker room talk”?
Well, we aren’t quite there yet. But does that mean that progress for women in business has come to a screeching halt? It’s true that the old rules didn’t get us as far as we hoped. But we can go the distance, and we can close the gaps that still exist. We just need a new way.
This change is real, and it’s coming fast. It’s time to own it.
My personal opinion:
The way I've done that is through trying to adjust my perspective.
I liked this book, useful and simple language, while continuing to deepen the main theme.
Sallie emphasizes the frequent gender differences in the area of work from a personal point of view from her experience as a researcher, and I agree with certain perspectives she mentions in the book.
I guess that was our "bad thing," the story the close call we'll tell for years.
He has touched the issue effectively and productively. I think every woman should read it.
