Despite years of climbing corporate ladders women are still lagging behind. Many are stalling at mid-career while others are leaving to find more balanced and meaningful work. Most are working way too hard simply trying to have a real life and a work life at the same time.
While men continue to move into the upper levels, women are told that they simply need to be more courageous or work harder to get to the top. As suggested by Sheryl Sandberg in her best-selling book, women just need to “Lean In.”
In this presentation, Maureen Fitzgerald, PhD—a recovering lawyer and change agent—shatters the thinking that women need to work harder and shines a bright light on the hidden reasons why women are not progressing.
As Fitzgerald says, “there is nothing wrong with women, but there is definitely something wrong with the way we treat them. The real culprit is not women, but rather our whole culture and out-dated mindsets.”
