Have you ever been the only woman in a meeting, at a conference, or assigned to an operation or project? Have you ever been overlooked for a promotion when a male co-worker with half the talent received it? Have you ever attended a social function where the spouses were all female? If you answered yes to any of these questions, Ann Garcia can help you negotiate a path to success. As a female special agent for a Federal law enforcement agency, where females consisted of 8 percent of the special agent population, Ann learned from experience that flourishing in a traditionally masculine field is difficult but not impossible. She assists the reader in identifying professional obstacles, professional goals, possible mentors, social networks, and strategies for success. You too can find Equal Footing in a male-dominated field.
