Xlibris Corporation, Dec 21, 2006 - Business & Economics - 78 pages
As women, we face a number of challenges as we strive to succeed in the workplace. Understandably, we feel conflicted. The glass ceiling and the unique stresses that we endure at all levels have been influenced by our historical and traditional roles as mothers in the home and as sexual objects. Society teaches us that a woman ́s place is in the home as wife and mother. A woman who excels is looked upon as an anomaly, and there is wide spread perception that women do not make effective leaders. In addition, at all levels in the workplace women are vulnerable to sexual harassment. Working women, particularly women in professional careers with long hours, have to find ways to balance work with family responsibilities. This book is a study of the tight rope we "walk" every day. You will be challenged to create your own sense of "balance". This book will encourage you to reach out for mentors; to search for support groups of other like-minded women; and to give back to younger women. This is a must read for any woman who is currently in college or graduate school and about to enter the workplace. Today ́s young, professional woman needs to understand the challenges that awaits her. In addition, women who are currently in the workplace will see themselves in this book. The author is Dr. Suzanne Penn. She is a successful entrepreneur, and professional speaker who has taught women in some of America ́s leading colleges and universities for over 25 years as an adjunct professor. She is a "baby boomer" and is a product of the University of Chicago ́s MBA program. She attended during the early 70 ́s when African-Americans and women were a novelty on the campus ́ of Ivy League institutions. Dr. Penn is married to Algernon H. Penn and together they have three adult children Jamila, Drake, and Alexandria. Dr. Sue can be reached at info@suzannepenn.com.
