More than fifty years after the beginning of the Women's Movement and forty years after passage of Title IX, women are still not "making it" in traditionally male careers. Women start their careers on parity with men but generally end them far earlier, having achieved less status, lower compensation, and less satisfaction than men. Breaking Through Bias explains that it is the stereotypes about women, men, work, leadership, and family that hold women back, and it presents an integrated set of communication techniques that women can use to avoid the discriminatory consequences of these stereotypes. Women define career success in a wide variety of ways. But whatever a woman's personal definition, if she is in a traditionally male-dominated career--virtually all high status, highly compensated fields--her career is at risk because of pervasive gender stereotypes. This highly practical book makes clear that women don't need to change who they are to succeed in their chosen careers, and they certainly don't need to act more like men. Women do, however, need to be attuned to the negative gender stereotypes that surround them; they need to anticipate the biases these stereotypes foster, and they need to manage the impressions they make to avoid or overcome these biases. Based on the authors' personal experiences as business leaders and practicing attorneys, involvement in compensation and hiring decisions, extensive mentoring activities, and numerous scientific and academic studies, Breaking Through Bias presents unique, practical, and effective advice about how women can at last break through gender bias in the workplace and win at the career advancement game.

Why is it that many women believe that working with other women is harder than working with men? A clue: it's not because women actually are harder to work with. After decades of working to help women to succeed at work, Andie Kramer and Al Harris noticed the same thing over and over again: Women's relationships with other women are causing conflict in the workplace and this is hindering careers across the board. Their research demonstrates that at the root of these clashes lie stereotypes, toxic assumptions and societal expectations about how women should behave. Through extensive research and hundreds of interviews, Andie and Al have identified the most fraught scenarios of women working for, working with, supervising, and collaborating with other women. It's Not You, It's the Workplace provides practical, immediately usable techniques that will allow women to develop strong networks that will foster their career success and organizations to structure their policies and practices - unlocking the potential of women in team situations. The companies that succeed in the future will be those where bias no longer blocks women's career satisfaction or advancement to leadership.

Women vs Women at Work offers a fresh approach to understanding why women's relationships with other women at work are often fraught and when they are, have the potential to completely derail women's careers. It's a pervasive and complicated issue which, until now, has been falsely represented by books that paint women as inherently bitchy back-stabbers who cannot help but have challenging relationships with other women. As the authors prove, this is patently untrue! Immensely practical, the book features real-world advice and tactics to overcome and avoid workplace conflict, and most-importantly, build on the positive aspects of women to women relationships, developing stronger networks that foster women's career success and creating a more supportive and satisfying work environment.

In What Millennial Lawyers Want: A Bridge from the Past to the Future of Law Practice, author Susan Smith Blakely expands her audience beyond young women lawyers to ALL young lawyers and those who lead them. Following the success of her three-book Best Friends at that Bar series, Ms. Blakely shifts her focus to millennial lawyers who are the future of the law profession. This book is for: Law students to understand current practices, what needs to be changed, and how to fit into an evolving profession; Law firm associates to validate their instincts about outdated law firm policies and toxic law firm cultures; and Law firm leaders to understand millennial lawyers and to make the necessary changes to law firm cultures to retain talent and lead them into the next quarter of the 21st century. Through extensive research about millennial lawyers and by millennial lawyers as well as entertaining and inspirational stories of lawyers from a generation past, Blakely makes a case that demonstrates a healthier path forward for a profession in transition—a path enriched by recapture of the values and beliefs, which successfully guided lawyers of the Greatest Generation. The message is that bad habits and toxic environments are not beyond repair if we listen to the voices of a new generation of lawyers and help them—and us—find a better way forward. You will learn: The facts about millennial lawyers; The values that millennial lawyers bring to the profession; What millennial lawyers want from law practice; The challenge for law firms to initiate change to retain and develop millennial lawyers; and Lessons from real life stories demonstrating values lost but not forgotten.
