“A candid, readable, and useful book about how we can get past talking about gender bias and actually start doing something about it.”
   —Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of ORIGINALS and GIVE AND TAKE, and host of the TED podcast WorkLife

Empowering women empowers everyone. Women with confidence, equal pay, and leadership opportunity enrich workplace culture and help the whole organization. The first step is understanding that gender balance is not a zero-sum game. The Next Smart Step is a clear, assured guide to understanding the challenge of gender imbalance, implementing solutions, and equipping readers with the tools we all need to ensure change that is positive and enduring. It is about all of us becoming leaders.
The Next Smart Step builds on a positive reality, helping readers recognize and manage unconscious biases, see diversity as a 21st-century skill, and work towards equal partnerships in the workplace. It outlines strategies for flexibility, communication, openness, and mutual respect. Gender equity is not only the right thing to do—it makes life better, workplace culture more diverse, opportunity more widely available, and organizations more successful. The Next Smart Step will help everyone from new hires to corporate executives learn the personal leadership this important issue demands.

FUNDAMENTAL ORGANIZATIONAL STRATEGY: A perfect primer for a successful organizational strategy that empowers employees across the gender spectrum to work towards a more open and effective work environment, whether that is centered on commercial, educational, or non-profit businesses.

PRACTICAL, POWERFUL MESSAGE: Avoids blame and initiates an open, honest discussion about how we work toward a workplace with full gender equity, and improve organizational performance as we do so.

TOPICAL SUBJECT with a LONG-LASTING MESSAGE: The call for equity in the workplace has been pushed to the forefront in recent years, but The Next Smart Step moves the call for equality into an actionable plan that will last far beyond the news.

RESOURCE for a WIDE VARIETY of WORKPLACE EXPERIENCES: Includes practical discussion of how the COVID-19 crisis has made us reassess our assumptions about work-life balance, flexible work schedules, and employee engagement making this a resource for a variety of workplace experiences and work situations.
