The 21st century workplace is broken, with massive, systemic problems when it comes to women. We are still backing into a workplace built for the single income, male led household of the 1950s. And it’s not working, especially for women.
In the Company of Men: How Women Can Succeed in a World Built Without Them takes on the NFL, the world of venture capital, Hollywood, the Catholic Church, food production, and the pornography industry—just a few of the heavily male-dominated spaces in which women have had to chip away at existing structures to build a better place that works for all.
The stories of the women dismantling and re-imagining these spaces will inspire you to reconsider the spaces in which you live and work, and find ways to make them work better for everyone.
The laws, systems, and structures in every society were built by and for men, and women have had to find a way to work within those or fight against them to just be included. In this talk, Eileen Scully, entrepreneur, activist, and author, shares data on the current state of women in positions of power in the workplace, how corporate cultures can shift to welcome women, and stories of women who have achieved great things but who are making it easier for others to find success. Eileen Scully a lancé The Rising Tides pour conseiller les organisations à améliorer le lieu de travail pour les femmes. Dans son livre « In the Company of Men : How Women Can Succeed in a World Built without Them » qui sera publié en 2018 présentent des histoires de femmes qui ont excellé dans des espaces dominés par les hommes. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
On the Monday, July 22nd episode of Nyberg, Ann speaks with first-time Connecticut author, Eileen Scully, on her book, “In The Company of Men”
They used to say this is a man's world. Eileen Scully just wrote the definitive book to say you can kiss that sh*t goodbye!
In the Company of Men: How Women Can Succeed in a World Built Without Them is a must-read tackling the visible barriers women face in a patriarchal world. Eileen Scully provides a roadmap for every single one of us who wants to improve our world. It is uplifting and refreshingly blunt. The examples of systemic injustice across industry, policy, and society will help readers understand the challenges, but also demand more from every aspect of our lives. The stories she shares will inspire and incite a new approach to activism and action.
As a woman who spent more than 30 years in the male-dominated world of financial services, I had to learn how to survive by trial and error--mostly error. Eileen's book provides all women with practical and heartfelt examples of how we can rewrite the narrative on building our success from within an organization. It is also a must-read for enlightened male leaders who recognize the value of creating a culture of achievement for all.
