Overview

The New Working Woman's (r)Evolution is a modern, practical survival and success road map for all women in the work force. This road map is comprised of eleven attributes needed to become empowered. And becoming empowered is critical in today's world of pay inequity, sexual harassment and lack of promotions beyond mid-level managerial positions. The ability to shatter the glass ceiling is further hampered by the under-representation of women in the board room across all industries, even those heavily represented by women. I have described, in detail, each of these attributes and how they work together to help you, the reader, become empowered at work. I have included worksheets to help the reader practice and become proficient in these attributes. I have also described the types of corporations, companies and work places, that will assist, not hamper, your journey to the top. I also offer advise in those cases where a work environment is not conducive to your advancement. How do you approach leadership, HR or other colleagues you work with? What are your options if harassment occurs? What are the signs that the company you work for is not the right fit for your work goals? By applying these attributes, you will be better able to work with the leadership at your workplace to improve the right's of women. These attributes will also give you the clear focus if you need to move on and search for the right work place that will help you evolve. Through the personal implementation these attributes, you will be able to complete your journey without compromising your core values. You will achieve what so many women are still striving for; being recognized and lauded for their talents, regardless of race, sex or physical appearances. Enjoy the journey! Here's to your success! I am woman, hear me roar! I am woman, see me soar!!

About the Author

Cristina Carballo-Perelman, M.D., has been a neonatologist for 30 years. She has seen how society devalues women, both at home and in the workplace by continually placing more value of women's beauty over brains. She and her coworkers have experienced this inequality and unfair treatment of women in the professional setting over the years.   Dr. Carballo-Perelman's passion and motivation to write her female empowering books derives from wanting to help women who have experienced similar situations. She provides hope that if they search for companies with ethics and integrity, they will indeed be re-hired.   Her aim is to empower women, not make them into "little men." By doing so, she hopes to accelerate the overall equality of the sexes in all areas of life!   Her other passions include employee rights and corporate social responsibility. She has first-hand experience concerning these topics as she was fired for " challenging the status-quo" at work. She realized to late the cost of working for a corporation without a "soul." These experiences have allowed her to help others navigate the workforce and become empowered as employees with rights.   Finally, as a physician, she has dealt with many issues concerning death, including the right to assist death "with dignity." Her "intimate interview" with Death itself, puts a unique spin to the topic.   There has been much accolades concerning all her books and the help they bring to those who read them.   Her hope is to continue to help others live empowered, joyful lives and enjoy this journey called life!

Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite The New Working Woman's (r)Evolution: How to Thrive and Succeed Through Empowerment is a self-help book by author Cristina Carballo-Perelman, M.D. As the title suggests, the topic of the guidebook focuses on the empowerment of women, largely in the Western world of business work forces. Some of the topics discussed include the disparity between the gender split at boardroom level versus the way a brand might represent its female clientele, the minefield of sexual harassment, and the presence of the glass ceiling now sitting at mid-level management in a lot of firms. Carballo-Perelman highlights the key areas in which women can both own and generate their power, with a view to overcoming such ridiculous obstacles and being judged on their merits rather than any outward aspect of their bodies. Cristina Carballo-Perelman takes a practical and well-organized approach to empowerment that I feel will be highly accessible to all, because it focuses inwardly on personality traits. Rather than fighting and blaming the outside system, The New Working Woman's (r)Evolution encourages change based on the empowerment of each individual woman, so that we as a gender are able to develop the qualities needed to rise above the ludicrous conditions that the world sets upon us. Something I really enjoyed was the idea of women removing themselves from those workplaces which just won’t aid you to stay, breaking some false loyalty ideas. I found the exercises slightly lacking in depth, but I felt the message behind each attribute was very valuable. This book is an excellent start for anyone on the path to success.
