Books we loved this month:

How Women Can Succeed in the Workplace (Despite Having “Female Brains”) by Valerie Alexander

“Yes, the title is hard to get past, but this is a great quick read that had me thinking on so many levels about what women are up against in male-dominated industries like ours.
This is a published copy of a lecture that Valerie Alexander gives about the evolution of the political and industrial world around male-focused values and how women need to understand these values and how they differ from those that women, in general, naturally hold. She offers advice on how to manage our natural inclinations in order to better develop our careers and advocate for the other women around us.”

You should Smile More by Dawn Hudson, Cie Nicholson, Mitzi Short, Katie Lacey, Lori Tauber Marcus, and Angelique Bellmer Krembs.

“This book is written as a collaboration from 6 women who have all held high ranking positions within PepsiCo who call themselves “The Band of Sisters” and have come up through the ranks. They share their experiences with gender bias that they experienced. They talk about barriers to inclusion and how these can equate to barriers in success and how they’re not glaring transgressions but little micro offenses that we all have encountered at one time or another.

While reading this book, I could identify with some of the situations as a female that I did not even realize were condoning behaviors that promote gender bias. These women had great ideas and suggestions in this book about how to dismantle gender bias in the workplace with small positive changes.”
