    Work-Life Imbalance: Evaluating Work Cultures as Women in Leadership brings together stories from women from all employment sectors on how they were able to overcome gender-based disadvantages and challenging work cultures to survive, thrive, and become successful.

    The opening chapter addresses how toxic work cultures can destroy employees. The remaining chapters offer insight into navigating and evaluating work cultures from the perspective of a woman. Each contributor speaks her truth, addressing work situations she’s faced and emphasizing the unique challenges women face in leadership positions. Throughout, the stories are infused with humor, insight, lessons learned, and practical advice. Dedicated chapters address preconceived ideas of what women should and shouldn’t do; embedded work culture based on geographic location; leadership styles women are forced into because of workplace culture; navigating political relationships and creating alliances; minority women leaders; and much more.

    Work-Life Imbalance is an essential resource for emerging women leaders, allies, inclusive workplaces, and anyone interested in furthering their career. It is also an excellent supplementary resource for courses and programs in leadership and women’s studies.
