In This Together
How Successful Women Support Each Other in Work and Life
NOW AVAILABLE ON AUDIOBOOK!
LISTEN TO SAMPLE
Women worldwide are breaking their silence—coming forward against the men that have oppressed and abused them in the #MeToo movement. It’s an exciting, liberating time for female empowerment—but now we have to relearn how women can support women.
Instead of supporting each other through the challenges of a traditionally male-dominated working world, millions of women have experienced the polar opposite. Studies show that 30% of workplace bullies are female—employing tactics such as cyber bullying, verbal attacks, gossiping, and shunning to use against each other—and many women have garnered “mean girl” reputations as competitive and unsupportive in the workplace. Learning to deal with mean women at work and diffuse this kind of negative power takes courage and strategy based on understanding the motives behind the behavior.
Inside the galvanizing In This Together, 40 successful women from a wide range of fields show us how women claim their power and how much we can achieve if we embrace our collective strength, instead of competing against each other. We can learn new skills to advance in our careers and ultimately earn more money; we can work to dramatically increase the number of women in leadership positions, and even recruit men as allies to take up workplace equality as their own impassioned cause.
Empowering, stirring, and actionable, In This Together is an indispensable addition to every woman’s arsenal in our continued fight for the opportunities we deserve.
“In This Together is a must read for women of all races, cultures, and backgrounds. This important and timely book brilliantly details how we as women can inspire and empower one another to build on our strengths and gain success in our workplaces, families, communities, society, and our world.”
