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.

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.

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.

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.
