The book offers specific strategies designed to break down barriers, build trust and create more inclusive communities in workplaces, schools and the world at large.

 

Weds Aug. 11: Ladies Get Paid: The Ultimate Guide to Breaking Barriers, Owning Your Worth and Taking Command of Your Career, by Claire Wasserman

Ladies Get Paid is an organization that champions the professional and financial advancement of women. This book follows real women who face a variety of professional challenges from salary negotiations to office politics. The book provides actionable advice and useable tools that equip and empower women to get the recognition and rewards that they deserve—and to see to it that other women are rewarded too!
