Women In Readership – A Women’s Leadership Book Club

As women, we need connection and support to thrive at home and at work. Sometimes, our best ideas go undeveloped just because there was no one beside us to say “You can do it!” We are creating the space for you to come together with other women to read great books, discuss great ideas, and create great lives for ourselves and our families.

This book club is open to women in all walks of life and all career levels. The only requirement is that you be open to discussing new ideas (and hopefully, you’ll make time to read the book each month!) We meet the fourth Thursday of each month to discuss that month’s book and how we can act on the new ideas we learn. We hope you can join us!

Here’s the June Book Club Choice: How Women Can Succeed in the Workplace (Despite Having “Female Brains”) by Valerie Alexander. Valerie was the Keynote Speaker at the East TN Women’s Leadership Summit.

Here’s bit of the book blurb from Amazon:

“While there are other books on the topic of male versus female brains, this is a concise, focused look at the issue that’s thorniest for women — dealing with male-dominated workplaces.”

How Women Can Succeed in the Workplace (Despite Having “Female Brains”) takes a frank and honest approach to examining what women are doing to hold ourselves back in the workplace, and how we can compete on a playing field designed by men to reward their achievements.
