Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Nancy Parsons discuss the following:

  1. Your book implies that women are part of the problem when it comes to the glass ceiling. Can you explain why?
  2. What does your research reveal about the different roles women play in the workforce, such as “Worriers”?
  3. In today’s “#metoo” era how have men and women reacted and what have been some of the positive or negative outcomes?
  4. How do women in smaller organizations, for example a small business run by a woman, encounter the glass ceiling externally? What particular challenges do they face and how can they overcome them?
  5. Above all your book reveals that women have the power to end the glass ceiling. How and what are some of the key steps?
