Very interesting and well-researched. A go-to for understanding some of the difficulties women still face (!) in the competitive workplace.

Short and to the point.

I really enjoyed this article, it is short but it provides a good insight into the challenges we women face. If you run HR, this can also be used as a first step to explore how the company mentioned in the audio went about turning the culture into a more women friendly one.
