Abstract
After Marissa Orr, a single mother of three, spent fifteen years working at today's tech giants like Facebook and Google, she became frustrated with the companies' efforts to promote more women. The lectures, workshops, and trainings delivered the subtle message that success requires adopting the behavior of her male colleagues. Orr realized that closing the gender gap in corporate America won't improve women's lives, because the goal stems from a male worldview, built on the premise of female inferiority--and that's why the numbers at the top have barely budged, despite thirty years of trying. Based on in-depth research and eye-opening personal experiences, author and tech industry veteran Marissa Orr explains: Why our pursuit to close the gender gap has come at the expense of female well-being; The need to reexamine the business world's paradigm of a "successful leader."; How greater diversity in corporate leadership will foster healthier work environments that benefit both women and men.
