(Un)Skirting the Issues : A Guide for the Well-Intentioned Man in Today's Workplace
by Jessica Poliner and Bonnie Fetch




Overview -
Men are from Mars and women are from Venus-but when it comes to the workplace, everyone needs to come down to Earth. While countless books teach women how to thrive in business, very few simply instruct men on how to help women gain corporate gender equality. It's time for men to join women in working toward a new future-and Bonnie Fetch and Jessica Poliner are just the successful women to show them how. In (Un)Skirting the Issues, Fletch and Poliner present a comprehensive strategy for well-intentioned men to recognize and prevent the unconscious bias, stereotypes, and ingrained expectations that affect women today. Pairing personal stories and examples with authoritative research and practical tips, this guide gives men all the tools they need to influence cultural and organizational change through dismantling image-based perceptions, exchanging special treatment for true partnerships, learning to listen, and breaking social barriers. Working together, men and women can understand, approach, develop, and advocate for equality and change-and begin building an inclusive work environment that benefits everyone.
