An Evening with Joan C. Williams & Rachel Dempsey
|57||31 days|| |
Described as having "something approaching rock star status” in her field by The New York Times Magazine, Joan C. Williams has played a central role in reshaping the conversation about work, gender and class over the past quarter century. Authored by Williams and Rachel Dempsey, What Works for Women at Work is a comprehensive, insightful and indispensable guide for mastering office politics.
Williams is a Distinguished Professor of Law, Hastings Foundation Chair and Founding Director of the Center for WorkLife Law at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law. Williams' path-breaking work helped create the field of work-family studies and modern workplace flexibility policies.
What Works for Women at Work was praised by The New York Times Book Review: "Deftly combining sociological research with a more casual narrative style, What Works for Women at Work offers unabashedly straightforward advice in a how-to primer for ambitious women." Following its success, Sheryl Sandberg and LeanIn asked Joan to create short videos sharing the strategies discussed in the book. The videos have been downloaded over 975,000 times and are featured by Virgin Airlines as in-flight entertainment, seen literally around the world. Most recently, Williams co-authored a workbook companion to What Works for Women at Work, available now from NYU Press.
