Overcoming the Biases that Can Limit Women’s Careers
Why do women find work-life balance so hard? Why is having it all such an illusive quest? Why haven’t women achieved equality yet in the leadership ranks?
In this Soundview Live webinar, Overcoming the Biases that Can Limit Women’s Careers, Jodi Ecker Detjen probes these questions and more. Through interviews with 118 college-educated women, they document the varied career stories and day-to-day anecdotes in the ongoing work-life struggle. They also uncover a revolutionary new line of thinking: Women are holding themselves back with outdated ideals and rigid rules for how to act: The Feminine Filter™. Detjen provides tools to help women remove this Filter and to help companies overcome the biases that limit women’s careers.
