Women in Business

Women hold up half the sky, which is a mean feat considering the glass ceiling dangles so oppressively low. Participation in corporate leadership – just 4.8% of CEOs in S&P 500 companies are women – indicates how rare it is to smash through the barriers that hold women back. But knowledge is power. To thrive in your career, learn to navigate biases, discrimination, sexual harassment, the gender pay gap, the old boy network, the household chore gap, and more.
