It is an important time to celebrate the advancement of women. We have made visible progress in the last few decades. The number of women entrepreneurs, business owners, and leaders in corporate leadership roles is growing. However, there are still many challenges women face that are different from their male counterparts. Women sometimes have beliefs or career myths that may interfere with their personal career satisfaction and success.
The book is based on a global survey of over 180 women and interviews with a dozen influential women in leadership and professional roles conducted from January to March 2018. The women validated 21 career myths and provided advice and tips for helping women overcome them. While women seem to agree that these myths exist, until now, there has been few development resources dedicated to overcoming them.

You will be thankful for each conversation and in gratitude for the other women
