An unprecedented number of doors have opened for women, and not all women are ready. Readers need the confidence to step into their power and own their authenticity to truly thrive at work. They are willing to do their part in closing the gender gap for female CEOs and negotiate equal pay and confront gender-based conversation bias. This action-packed communication handbook provides the tools and confidence needed to approach the problem.
