Are you a woman struggling to make it in a field or a company that’s heavily populated by men? Do you aspire to be an astronaut, an engineer, or a CEO but can’t quite figure out how to crash through the fabled (yet all too real) glass ceiling? Have you bought into the stereotype that men are simply better suited for certain industries than women—or that you have to “act like a man” to get ahead?
If the answer to any of these questions is “Yes!” you’ve come to the right place.
Roxanne Rivera, author of the new book There’s No Crying in Business and renowned speaker, knows what it takes to be a successful woman in a male-dominated industry. (She learned it from her 22 years of serving as president and CEO of a successful construction company.) Now, she’d like to share her (often surprising) advice with you.
There’s No Crying in Business proves women are just as smart, hardworking, and driven as men. Pulling from her interviews with female academics, engineers, politicians, mathematicians, neurologists, and others in male-dominated organizations—as well as from her own experiences in the construction industry—Roxanne offers insights and advice about how women can succeed and thrive in male-dominated industries.
So grab your (metaphorical) pink hard hat and get ready to go. No matter what stage you’re at in your career, There’s No Crying in Business will help you survive and thrive in a “man’s world”—without checking your femininity at the door.
