Overview
Women graduate from colleges, law schools, business schools and film schools at the same rate as men, but ten years later, our participation in the upper ranks of almost all industries is less than 20%, and in some fields, less than 10%. How Women Can Succeed in the Workplace (Despite Having "Female Brains") takes a frank and honest approach to examining what women are doing to hold ourselves back, and how we can compete on a playing field designed by men to reward their achievements. Using relevant studies in evolutionary biology, anthropology and sociology, as well as examples from her life as a securities lawyer, investment banker, Internet executive and screenwriter, Valerie Alexander explains the evolution of the "gendered" brain and the corporate structure, showcasing and dissecting areas where women's natural tendencies prevent us from succeeding in male-designed workplaces. How Women Can Succeed in the Workplace tackles a difficult subject with candor, humor and confidence -- and two of those traits are actually welcome in the workplace
