The gender equality movement has fundamentally altered the work environment. Companies are now hiring and promoting more women – notably, in upper management positions traditionally dominated by men. Many men feel uncertain about navigating these developments. Wariness of sexual harassment allegations can make some men shy away from working closely with female colleagues. Others find themselves questioning their longstanding attitudes and behaviors. In this must-read manual, Heather Zumarraga offers compassionate, yet challenging advice for men on how to avoid workplace pitfalls. Her approach isn’t flawless, but the topic is so crucial, men and women alike can benefit from her guidance.

1 year agoAlthought it's a good start that we talk about women and men in a workplace let's not pretend that we know everything. Author says that in a workplace you should behave strictly professionally yet ~22% married couples in USA started their relationship in workplace. I don't think author wants to prevent that. Hence we need to have more discussions and better set of rules for workplace than presented in this book.
