    In keeping with HBR, this is mainly geared towards private sector. I knew that going in, but am still always disappointed by the reality. But some of this is still applicable to public sector. I thought the most interesting part was an interview with Sheryl Sandburg at the end, which they threw in as a “bonus appendix”.

    I skipped one article (can't remember which one) and the rest was nice, lots of useful words that will make me sound important (seriously, the language was great in all of them) but not that many ground-breaking thoughts and concepts. Still a good collection that, hopefully, makes me more aware of certain things in the workplace.

    The article “The Power is Talk” had a huge impact on me... I felt like the author was calling me out on all of my inner thoughts. I had no idea that those things weren’t just a “me” thing, but a product of socialization based on my gender. Wow. The other article I enjoyed was “Why Diversity Programs Fail”. I felt like it had some really helpful tools that any business could apply to actually help with diversity, rather than just talking the talk. The reason I rated this 3 stars was because it real The article “The Power is Talk” had a huge impact on me... I felt like the author was calling me out on all of my inner thoughts.

I felt like it had some really helpful tools that any business could apply to actually help with diversity, rather than just talking the talk. The reason I rated this 3 stars was because it really bothered me that most of the articles talked about this study or that study, but had no citations or links to the actual studies. Not only would I have appreciated this for further reading, but it just made me really skeptical that I just had no information other than a vague idea that “they” did a study on “thing” with “some people”.

    Este livro tem artigos muito pertinentes, que servem como um bom ponto de partida para discussões importantes sobre o mundo corporativo e as mulheres. Entretanto, julgo que seria necessário investigar com mais detalhes as reais dificuldades das mulheres negras, nas diferentes geografias, e as várias vertentes de "leadership" - que não está apenas associada ao mundo corporativo, é um tema que deve começar a ser abordado desde a família e o ensino de base. Apesar disso, recomendo a leitura, pois p Este livro tem artigos muito pertinentes, que servem como um bom ponto de partida para discussões importantes sobre o mundo corporativo e as mulheres. Entretanto, julgo que seria necessário investigar com mais detalhes as reais dificuldades das mulheres negras, nas diferentes geografias, e as várias vertentes de "leadership" - que não está apenas associada ao mundo corporativo, é um tema que deve começar a ser abordado desde a família e o ensino de base. Apesar disso, recomendo a leitura, pois pode servir como base para as mulheres que já estão inseridas no mundo corporativo, repensarem no seu papel.

    Meh. This one didn't inspire me at all: there was a lot of information regarding the problems women face in workplaces/inhibitors to career success, but there was not enough on what we should do or change, or how I can change. More informative than execution-based. Meh.

    The basics to get re inspired and in action to drive gender equality Inclusion comes from understanding the basis, both societal and intrinsically that drives women out of the workforce or outs then in worse conditions for success. These 10 papers cover most of the topics.

    This is a fantastic compilation of writings that cover various issues women face to become leaders. There were many ah-ha! moments for me that were relatable to my own work-life experience and this voiced how I was feeling. Great read!

    Discusses both women and minority issues. Recommends classifying value as more than just the hours put in, but rather the quality and value of the work. It also suggests people who are more invested in the company and its values can provide more to the business. I enjoyed reading it and looking past the stereotypical climbing of the corporate ladder to getting more fulfillment at work and being ok with a zig-zagging career.
