Do Women Really Like It on Top?
What does it take for women to reach the top of the career ladder in a post-feminist world? Should women even try or should they set a new standard of success, better suited to their values and unique strengths? Is there still a glass ceiling? What does it cost, personally, professionally, to shatter it? And what (if anything) still holds women back? Former Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief and New York Times bestselling author Kate White, ABC News correspondent Claire Shipman, upstart creative entrepreneur Miki Agrawal, and career expert and LinkedIn’s Global Ambassador Lindsay Pollak share hard-won wisdom and provocative insights about these questions and more. These savvy high achievers speak frankly about the myths and realities of power, ambition, confidence, and what it takes for women to succeed in today’s business environment.
