Explanation of the Book:

"You cannot win without a workplace where women and men have equal opportunities, equal input, and equal power." —Dominic Barton, Global Managing Partner, McKinsey & Company On almost a daily basis, we read stories in the news about high-profile male leaders, CEOs, venture capitalists, and entrepreneurs harassing and acting inappropriately toward the women with whom they work. Following such revelations, these men generally lose their jobs, and their companies lose valuable female talent, customers/clients, and their reputations. And, although we regularly hear stories about the "bro culture" that obstructs women's progress and creates hostile work environments for them, we haven't heard as much about the efforts of good men who want to change the in-office behavior of their teams and companies so that they and women they work with can realize their full potential and their businesses can thrive. This book teaches men and managers how to respond in these situations and how to lead by example. In WE: Men, Women, and the Decisive Formula for Winning at Work, Rania Anderson lends her guidance on this exact topic. Social mores have changed, and yet, well-intentioned managers simply don't always know what to do and what's appropriate and useful to actively recruit, retain, and advance more women into leadership. They want to be told how this can make a difference to them and how they can make a difference— this book shows you how to improve your own results and win in business: A new playbook to recruit and retain high-caliber women Take actions to work effectively, elevate and lead with women in the workplace Discover how traditional social roles exert a powerful pull on people of both genders and what to do about it. End confusion of male leaders In the #MeToo era when everyone else is focused on what’s wrong and what not to do, WE: Men, Women, and the Decisive Formula for Winning at Work, is about what’s going well and what you can do. Men who are front-line managers, middle managers, and senior managers have been sidelined and left out of efforts to achieve gender parity for too long. Now, these guys can get back in the game!

Explanation of the Book:

First, we leaned in. Now we stand up. In this “much-needed combo of real talk, confessions, and lessons learned along the way” (Chelsea Handler), Jaclyn Johnson—the founder and CEO behind Create & Cultivate, the fastest growing online platform for millennial businesswomen—offers a rallying cry for a new generation of women who are redefining the meaning of work on their own terms. Jaclyn suffered a massive blow in her early twenties. She was on an upward career climb and confidently moved across the country for a job—and then, was abruptly let go. Attempting to turn that closed door into an open window, she launched a company with a trusted business partner. Soon after, she discovered said business partner had made detrimental decisions to the company without her knowledge. Before she knew it, she was in the throes of a brutal business partner break up. She was only twenty-four. Determined to bounce back, Jaclyn overhauled the mess that was her life and by the time she was in her early thirties, she had sold a company and launched the much-buzzed about Create & Cultivate platform—and advised and invested in multiple million-dollar projects at the same time. So, how did she do it? In WorkParty, Jaclyn shows how she turned distrust into determination, frustration into fuel, and heartache into hard work—and how you can, too. With stories from leading female entrepreneurs including Christene Barberich (co-founder of Refinery29), Alli Webb, (creator of Drybar), Morgan Debaun (founder of Blavity), Jen Gotch of Ban.do, Rebecca Minkoff, and Kendra Scott, you will learn the tips and tricks from the best in the business while cultivating the passion and happiness you need to succeed. “This is the book you need to take your career to the next level—on your own terms” (Refinery29).
