On Women and Working

As we have discussed in class, most of the time women have been subject to prejudice behavior when it comes to the workplace. This article is a book review about the most common biases and how we should cope with them. It tries to explain what it is about women that sometimes hold them back in business. For example, women tend to take criticism personally, rather than use feedback about poor performance as a source of insight and an aid to getting ahead. Women’s fear of speaking up in meetings allows men to dominate conversations, and (as studies show) women aren’t as adept at negotiating their compensation. Another obstacle on career advancement, according to the authors, is the tendency to build relationships based on friendship with like-minded individuals.
