Overview

Success on Our Own Terms Q: How many female CEOs does it take to break the glass ceiling? A: That’s the wrong question! Numbers alone simply don’t tell the real story of how women are doing in today’s corporate world. Success on Our Own Terms does. It’s filled with real stories—stories of ordinary women who are making an extraordinary difference in the way corporations work. Success on Our Own Terms features women of different ages, ethnic backgrounds, and educational levels. Their combined experiences offer a fascinating portrait of how the corporate landscape has changed for women over the last few decades. This book is filled with the wisdom of these experiences, from important lessons on navigating corporate corridors and influencing the system to juggling work and personal life, helping local communities, and much more. Exploring the multidimensional definition of success shared by these women, this book reveals how they are working hard to reach their goals, balance their lives, and make a positive contribution to society. It shows how they—and others like them—are transforming the organization from the inside out through their own unique management style, values, vision, and determination. By designing, achieving, and owning their success, women are exploding conventional definitions of their progress in the workplace. The female voices in Success on Our Own Terms inform, encourage, and inspire us all.
