Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead
Ask most women whether they have the right to equality at work and the answer will be a resounding yes, but ask the same women whether they'd feel confident asking for a raise, a promotion, or equal pay, and some reticence creeps in. The statistics, although an improvement on previous decades, are certainly not in women's favour - of 197 heads of state, only twenty-two are women. Women hold just 20 percent of seats in parliaments globally, and in the world of big business, a meagre eighteen of the Fortune 500 CEOs are women. In Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook COO and one of Fortune magazine's Most Powerful Women in Business - looks at what women can do to help themselves, and make the small changes in their life that can effect change on a more universal scale. She draws on her own experiences working in some of the world's most successful businesses, as well as academic research, to find practical answers to the problems facing women in the workplace. Learning to 'lean in' is about tackling the anxieties and preconceptions that stop women reaching the top - taking a place at the table, and making yourself a part of the debate.

Good Company: The Fear(less) Issue
Published last season in the wake of her continuing bestseller In the Company of Women, Grace Bonney's Good Company is the innovative and supportive journal for women and non binary creatives at every stage of life, founded on the power of inclusivity, diversity, and celebrating the differences that unite. Its mission is to provide motivation, inspiration, advice, and a vital sense of connection and community. Sharing everything from overarching philosophy and pep talks to useful, targeted advice, the debut Community Issue brought together diverse voices (including Tavi Gevinson, Cynthia Erivo, Julia Turshen, Emma Straub, Ashley C. Ford, and Beejoli Shah) and experiences (from woodworkers, tattoo artists, bakers, mental health advocates, designers, and more). The Fear(less) Issue continues Good Company's mission to provide an energetic and highly stimulating place to connect, learn, grow, and work through the challenges that women across the spectrum experience in pursuing their passions and dreams. The Fear(less) Issue focuses on the subject at the heart of any kind of ambition: failure. We all fail - but it's how we fail, and how we recover, that separates a positive experience from a negative one. This issue shares words, stories, life lessons, and more as it explores something we all shun, yet which has a power unlike any other to help us succeed.

Invested: How Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger Taught Me to Master My Mind, My Emotions, and My Money (with a Little Help from My Dad)
New York Times bestseller! A 12-Month Plan to Financial Freedom A terrifically informative and thoughtful book. - Gretchen Rubin, bestselling author of The Happiness Project and The Four Tendencies In this essential handbook-a blend of Rich Dad, Poor Dad and The Happiness Project-the co-host of the wildly popular InvestED podcast shares her yearlong journey learning to invest, as taught to her by her father, investor and bestselling author Phil Town. Growing up, the words finance, savings, and portfolio made Danielle Town's eyes glaze over, and the thought of stocks and financial statements shut down her brain. The daughter of a successful investor and bestselling financial author of Rule #1, Phil Town, she spent most of her adult life avoiding investing-until she realized that her time-consuming career as lawyer was making her feel anything but in control of her life or her money. Determined to regain her freedom, vote for her values with her money, and deal with her fear of the unpredictable stock market, she turned to her father, Phil, to help her take charge of her life and her future through Warren Buffett-style value investing. Over the course of a year, Danielle went from avoiding everything to do with the financial industrial complex to knowing exactly how and when to invest in wonderful companies. In Invested, Danielle shows you how to do the same: how to take command of your own life and finances by choosing companies with missions that match your values, using the same gold standard strategies that have catapulted Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger to the top of the Forbes 400. Avoiding complex math and obsolete financial models, she turns her father's investing knowledge into twelve easy-to understand lessons. In each chapter, Danielle examines the investment strategies she mastered as her increasing know-how deepens the trust between her and her father. Throughout, she streamlines the process of making wise financial decisions and shows you just how easy-and profitable-investing can be. Capturing a warm, charming, and down-to-earth give and take between a headstrong daughter and her mostly patient dad, Invested makes the complex world of investing simple, straightforward, and approachable, and will help you formulate your own investment plan-and foster the confidence to put it into action.

Careers for Women: Transnational Studies in Public Policy and Employment Equity
The unifying theme of Women and Careers is women's educational and employment success, with the objective of profiling supportive public policy in global contexts from Atlantic Canada to Western Europe, Australia and China. It takes up the career processes of women from marginalized groups who have been underrepresented historically: women who are the first generation to graduate from university in both Atlantic Canada (New Brunswick) and China and rural women from the eastern most Canadian province (Newfoundland and Labrador). It examines the situation of marginalized Protestant women in Belfast, Northern Ireland, who benefit from a European Union program that supports their political and social involvement in an economically underdeveloped region and previously unimagined in a country once wrought by sectarian violence. A policy analysis of an Atlantic Canadian region after the dominant forestry industry leaves takes up policy options and women's possible agency should economic support return for small business networks and social enterprise, e.g., credit unions, food and social housing cooperatives. Proactive employment equity programs in Finland's Applied Science Institute and Switzerland's Forestry Institute provide cutting edge examples of diversity and inclusion policies in education and academia. A comparative study of Canada and Australia of two leading public service employers illustrates incremental outcomes for women managers and professionals but raises the ultimate question of the pace and necessary political will required to remove barriers to gender equality in countries with major gender inequities. Women and Careers examines a series of institutional contexts transnationally and the impact of policies, programs and economic re-structuring on careers outcomes. It displays the latest research on the topic and will be of interest both to students at an advanced level, academics, reflective practitioners, and diversity managers. It addresses the topics with regard to women's education and employment and will interest researchers, academics and policymakers in the fields of women's employment and career studies, diversity programs, organization studies, development policy, gender studies and globalization.

You Are a Mogul: How to Do the Impossible, Do It Yourself, and Do It Now
As the founder of Mogul-praised by Sheryl Sandberg as the #1 millennial platform-Tiffany Pham created a global technology and media empire by the age of 27. As living proof that the old rules of success no longer apply, Tiffany writes the new rules for following your passions and forging your own path in an age of disruption. Traditionally, the word mogul has been attributed to men. But Tiffany Pham has redefined it-now, when you Google the word, the top search result is the company she founded: Mogul. The platform enables millions of women, across 196 countries, to connect, share information, and access knowledge. So how did a young woman-who arrived in the United States without speaking a word of English-turn a dream of connecting women into a fulfilling career and highly profitable company that has changed so many lives? Tiffany chronicles her path to becoming one of the most successful entrepreneurs of her generation, and offers specific, actionable advice that covers everything from overcoming self-doubt, to pursuing side-hustles, to crushing it at life and work by over-delivering, all while remaining your authentic self. You will learn how to negotiate job promotions, secure and balance multiple career roles, hire and manage teams, and become a mogul yourself. The book also features strategies and insights from ten of the most powerful moguls worldwide, including Nina Garcia, Star Jones, and Rebecca Minkoff. You Are A Mogul addresses the new reality that few of us will work for one company for our entire career and that there is no one straightforward formula for a good life -personally or professionally. To succeed, we have to be agile, flexible, and strategic. You Are A Mogul is an indispensable road map to the kind of life and career that is demanding and challenging-but also exciting and full of opportunities, if you know where to look.

Leap and the Net Appears: How I Built a $100 Million Business from My Kitchen Table
Draw inspiration from Raegan Moya-Jones' empowering journey and learn how to take the leap into entrepreneurship. Raegan Moya-Jones is one of today's most fascinating entrepreneurs. Growing up a party girl in Australia more interested in travelling the world than holding down a job, she dropped out of college and moved to New York. Finally getting her act together she went into sales but soon realized corporate life wasn't for her. It was obvious that her (mostly male) bosses didn't like being challenged by an outspoken Aussie chick. So she decided to start a company on her own terms. And instead of quitting her sales executive job at the Economist, she quietly built her business in the small hours of the night after putting her young daughters to bed. Seeing a huge opening in the baby products market, Raegan started aden + anais, which introduced muslin blankets and the art of swaddling to the U.S. When the company reached $1 million in revenue in less than two years, she was finally ready to make the leap to a full-time entrepreneur. Skip forward ten years and today the little company she founded is a thriving international brand with a global revenue over $100 million, and Raegan has made another leap, launching Saint Luna, a boutique liquor company poised to turn the stereotype of moonshine on its head. The John Burroughs quote Leap, and the net will appear has always been Raegan's guiding principle in business. Her entrepreneurial journey -- from babies to booze -- will show the hopeful entrepreneur that she doesn't have to know it all, as long as she's willing to leap. If Raegan can do it, anyone can.

Women Kind: Unlocking the Power of Women Supporting Women
'Women Kind is an impeccably researched love letter to those who hold up half the sky.' Jamila Rizvi 'Just like #CelebratingWomen, this book is an essential and timely reminder of the collective power of women.' Kate Jenkins, Australian Sex Discrimination Commissioner Women are rallying together in a massive and unstoppable force to make their voices heard around the world in ways we have never seen before. When Dr Kirstin Ferguson, an Australian company director, decided she was fed up with the vicious online abuse of women, she turned the tables and used social media to create the #CelebratingWomen campaign, profiling two women from anywhere in the world and every walk of life, every day for a year. The response was overwhelming. In Women Kind, Ferguson joins Walkley award-winning journalist and leading commentator on women in the workplace Catherine Fox to examine how women's shared clout is transforming communities, workplaces and leadership; show that every woman is a role model; and challenge the idea that women regularly turn on each other for scarce seats at the top table. Ferguson and Fox urge us to get on board and forget the old saying that when a woman climbs the corporate ladder, she needs to send it back down to help one other woman. What's needed is a fishing net to bring up many women together, all supporting each other. There has never been a better moment to join our voices, share experiences and celebrate the power of women supporting women.

Handbook of Research Methods in Diversity Management, Equality and Inclusion at Work
Equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) have become features of organizations as a result of both legal and societal advances as well as neoliberal economic reasoning. While current research approaches frequently fall short of addressing the challenges faced in EDI research, this benchmark Handbook brings coverage of research methods in EDI up to date, and advances the development of research in the field. Bringing together well-known academics and researchers, this Handbook is a distillation of current and novel research in the field of EDI. Chapters present groundbreaking new research and methodological perspectives on international, regional and national issues, from equal opportunities and gender mainstreaming to managing diversity in legal, political and socio-economic contexts. Alongside this, the authors discuss new analytic directions to advance empirical EDI research. This Handbook will help to shape the present and future EDI discourse. The book is an invaluable addition to the current literature, particularly for students of EDI and researchers working in the fields of human resource management, strategic management and organization, and culture and change management as well as entrepreneurship and marketing.

Gender Equality in a Global Perspective
Gender Equality in a Global Perspective looks to discuss whether Gender Equality can be adopted as it has been defined in international documents anywhere, or whether it needs to be adapted in a more local context; discuss which factors and perspectives need to be taken into account when adapting Gender Equality to specific contexts; suggest research approaches for studies on whether a universal (Western) concept of Gender Equality fits in certain specific contexts; and finally suggests challenges to the existing interpretation of Gender Equality (e.g., theory of intersectionality); and the development of legal and policy framework. This book is situated within the tradition of comparative gender studies. While most other such books take up and compare various ways of implementing (or not implementing) gender equality, this book studies and compares whether or not (and to what extent) a specific definition of Gender Equality (GE) could be adopted by various nations. Thus, all chapter contributors will engage with the same definition of GE, which will be presented within the book, and discuss the possibilities and constrains related to applying such a definition in their particular national context. The readers will learn about the problems of applying a universal concept of Gender Equality and the possible reasons for and modes of adapting Gender Equality to different contexts. Gender Equality in a Global Perspective looks to maintain a critical and reflexive stance towards the issues raised and will seek to present multiple perspectives and open-ended answers. As such it hopes to contribute to the international discussion of human rights more broadly and Gender Equality specifically. The intended audience is not limited only to but will include policy makers, scholars and students with an interest in Gender issues, Organizational Theory, Political Science, Human Development, Policy Analysis, Globalization and other management sub-disciplines.

Liberating Hollywood: Women Directors and the Feminist Reform of 1970s American Cinema
Liberating Hollywood examines the professional experiences and creative output of women filmmakers during a unique moment in history when the social justice movements that defined the 1960s and 1970s challenged the enduring culture of sexism and racism in the U.S. film industry. Throughout the 1970s feminist reform efforts resulted in a noticeable rise in the number of women directors, yet at the same time the institutionalized sexism of Hollywood continued to create obstacles to closing the gender gap. Maya Montanez Smukler reveals that during this era there were an estimated sixteen women making independent and studio films: Penny Allen, Karen Arthur, Anne Bancroft, Joan Darling, Lee Grant, Barbara Loden, Elaine May, Barbara Peeters, Joan Rivers, Stephanie Rothman, Beverly Sebastian, Joan Micklin Silver, Joan Tewkesbury, Jane Wagner, Nancy Walker, and Claudia Weill. Drawing on interviews conducted by the author, Liberating Hollywood is the first study of women directors within the intersection of second wave feminism, civil rights legislation, and Hollywood to investigate the remarkable careers of these filmmakers during one of the most mythologized periods in American film history.

In This Together: How Successful Women Support Each Other in Work and Life
Thoughts, advice, and stories from 40 successful women across a variety of careers-from authors to actresses, CEOs and professors-encouraging women to support each other in the workplace and in life-along with action plans on how all women can work together to break free from the binds of gender inequality. 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 moment time of female empowerment-but now we have to relearn how to connect with each other. 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. Inside the galvanizing In This Together, 40 successful and eminent women from a wide range of fields show us how much we can achieve if we embrace our collective power and strength, instead of competing against each other-such as learning new skills to advance in our careers and ultimately earn more money, working to dramatically increase the number of women in leadership positions, and even recruiting men to take up workplace equality as their own impassioned cause. Empowering, stirring, and actionable, In This Together is an indispensable addition to every modern woman's arsenal in our continued fight for the opportunities we deserve.

The purpose of this book is to give women a jolt of 'FUCK YES' in their lives and disrupt the status quo thinking that currently drives so many of us. Disrupt-Her is a Modern Woman's Manifesto, asking - no, demanding - that women question, dissect and then disrupt 13 major areas, issues and preconceptions in their lives. Miki Agrawal, founder of cutting-edge companies including THINX and TUSHY, gets us to look with fresh eyes at the notion of being an adult, the constant 'chirping' of complaints and comparisons in our brains, the illusion of perfection, our interactions with 'Hate-Hers,' our relationships with men who are stuck in the Patriarchy (and how we can replace them with SNAGS, or Secure New Age Guys) and so much more. When we do question, challenge and then disrupt all aspects of our lives, we can live a more excited, impassioned, lit-up existence filled with adventure, love, friendship and fulfilling work that creates a positive ripple effect. Disrupt-Her is a first of its kind: it's equal parts autobiographical and research driven, asks questions for the reader to think about and act on at the end of each chapter. Not to mention, it's one of the first adult books that has a mini children's book at the end of every chapter and introduces an irresistible character - a loving Accountabilibuddy named RB the Rubber Band (full name Are-Be), who will help you reveal who you are today and help you get to who you want to be moving forward.

Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men
Our world is largely built for and by men, in a system that can ignore half the population. This book will tell you how and why this matters In The Other Half, award-winning writer and feminist campaigner Caroline Criado Perez takes on the global gender data gap, which she places at the root of perpetual, systemic discrimination against women; she exposes how this data gap has created a pervasive invisible bias that has a profound effect upon women's lives. In Caroline's words, the book is `a forensic examination of the myriad hidden ways in which women are excluded from the very building blocks of the world we live in, and the impact this has on our health and wellbeing'. Drawing on new research and an impressive range of case studies - from government policy and medical research to healthcare, technology, workplaces, urban planning and the media - this book is a provocative expose of how the infrastructure of our lives is constructed upon biased data excluding half of the world's population. Part data-crunching and analysis, part personal stories, part call-to-arms, The Other Half draws on examples from across the world to detail the huge gaps in our knowledge, looking at the consequences of building a world around the male body and making the case for change.
