The Authority Gap: Why Women Are Still Taken Less Seriously Than Men, and What We Can Do About It
By Mary Ann Sieghart
Are women taken less seriously in professional endeavors? Are women afforded fewer opportunities? Are women interrupted more and promoted less than their male coworkers? If so, why, and what can be done about it?
If you would like to discuss these issues as well as potential solutions, please join us on December 8, 2022 at 6:30pm for a discussion about selected portions of Ms. Sieghart’s book.
To prepare for the meeting, please read the following portions of the book:
The reading assignment is short (should take 30 minutes or less) and can easily be read over the upcoming holiday. Please select and be ready to discuss one or two quotes from Chapter 1 that caught your interest and one or two suggestions from Chapter 15 that would be worthwhile to implement where you work. Gwenyth Searer, a Principal at Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates, Inc., will be leading the discussion.
