Career Lunch & Learn: What Works for Women at Work

Williams presents on her book, and offers savvy advice, based on her extensive research and interviews with 127 highly successful women, to help women navigate office politics. Drawing on hundreds of published studies, Williams pinpoints the ways office politics are trickier for women than men, and even trickier for women of color, identifying four distinct patters of gender bias. Take away a toolkit of politically-savvy strategies for addressing even the most vexing career challenges, with a range of strategies so you can find a technique best suited for your personality and work situation.
