Very broad range of industries studied — from Obama administration to late night comedy writing rooms to symphony auditions to legal to academia to medical professions.
That’s What She said acknowledges the multi-faceted, seemingly slight, everyday ways that men and women experience work differently. And offers practical ideas on how to stick up for your coworkers.
Lipman, rather than deducing gender inequality down to one root cause, offers hundreds of differences and for each problem offers an array of solutions — from adjusting behaviors to acknowledging injustices to enlisting data and technology to reveal bias. The book felt very modern with the blend of recent research and technological hacks along with their shortcomings
As a result, I finished the book with a mental list of 20+ things I can start doing this week to promote more gender balance and equal opportunity at work. I finished the book with a mental list of 40+ things I want to implement and change when I have more influence at work. Very practical and research-driven.
From the cover, I thought the audience for the book was primarily men, but as a woman, found it very helpful to point out ways I can better champion other women.
I loved to wear skirts on my days off; get dressed up; look nice and speak eloquently. I couldn't have been more "manly" than the men even if I wanted to, because of my extreme conservative upbringing. Women just weren't supposed to act like that, and as I said, I didn't think I had to. I constantly felt insignificant. I was a girly girl, fixing airplanes in a world full of men. But I was GOOD at it. I didn't need to be manly to be a good mechanic, and in fact, I thought it actually distracted my female counterparts from doing their job.
I have always believed, ALWAYS, that women shouldn't have to be manly to climb the corporate ladder. To be accepted. To be paid equally. The idea is ridiculous. Men and women work best when they bring their unique talents to the table together. So I'll say again that I devoured this book. I read it twice, and I'm now on a third. It's the most prolific work I've ever found on realistic ways to close the gender gap, and I'd recommend it to men and women alike. Most men aren't the enemy. Most men shouldn't be demonized or blamed. And women can't do this only by talking with other women.
This book is the solution, and if you care at all about the critical subject at hand, PLEASE read it!!!
Ms. Lipman provides authority for her work. It's part motivational, part handbook, part blueprint, part call to action, part enterprise profit generator. What its not is another book that "manshames." Her highly nuanced style draws the reader in. The accessibility with which she writes makes her prose jump out at you, grab you and ask you, "can you to just a little more, can you look at things a different way for the benefit of your enterprise?" These qualities make Ms. Lipman's a treat for men and women of all ages, thought provoking without being preachy.
Thank you for your game changing book. That's what she said is a mandatory read for anyone trying to make their workplace or their institutional fiduciary roles more effective and fulfilling.

Exploring Culture is one ( puzzle-pieces people on its cover )
Never before had I understood that there are 5 measurable dimensions/spectrums of culture,
& that one can simply understand beforehand, what difference there is between one's own & theirs...
another stupendous key is something-like
Lead Right For Your Company's Type
it is an Amacom book, /and is so important that it should be offered to every high-school kid there is!/
This book also is in this ultra-key category.
Gratitude to you for writing it!
