THE BOOK - OWN IT: THE POWER OF WOMEN AT WORK
So much career advice for women addresses how to succeed in the static business world of yesterday and today. In the increasingly complex and connected world of tomorrow – one in which communication and collaboration rule the day - the skills and qualities needed for success are ones that women inherently possess. And by owning and investing in those qualities women have more power than ever.
Here Krawcheck draws on her experiences at the highest levels of business, both as one of the lone women at the top rungs of the biggest boy’s club in the world, and as an entrepreneur, to show how women can tap into this growing power to elevate their careers. Women have the opportunity to play a more significant role than they know in shaping their companies into places they want to work – or leave to start their own: by initiating the “courageous conversations” about true flexibility and diversity in the workplace, forging non-traditional career paths, and more.
Sallie Krawcheck’s professional mission is to help women reach their financial and professional goals. She is CEO and co-founder of Ellevest, a digital investment platform for women. She is chair of Ellevate Network, the global professional woman’s network. She is chair of Pax Ellevate Global Woman’s Index Fund, which invests in the top-rated companies in the world for advancing women. Krawcheck is the past CEO of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, the largest wealth management business in the world, at $2.2 trillion in assets.
