Join us for our monthly event where we engage, share, and discuss our learnings from some of the bestselling and inspirational personal development books of our time. A friendly, open learning space that provides accountability for anyone who wants to focus on their own development by reading, networking, and sharing thoughts with other professionals.
At our fifth book club meeting in May, we will be reading: The Confidence Code: The Science and Art of Self-Assurance -- What Women Should Know by journalists, anchors and best selling authors Katty Kay and Claire Shipman.
About the book:
New York Times Bestseller
Following the success of Lean In and Why Women Should Rule the World, the authors of the bestselling Womenomics provide an informative and practical guide to understanding the importance of confidence—and learning how to achieve it—for women of all ages and at all stages of their career.
Working women today are better educated and more well qualified than ever before. Yet men still predominate in the corporate world. In The Confidence Code, Claire Shipman and Katty Kay argue that the key reason is confidence.
Combining cutting-edge research in genetics, gender, behavior, and cognition—with examples from their own lives and those of other successful women in politics, media, and business—Kay and Shipman go beyond admonishing women to "lean in." Instead, they offer the inspiration and practical advice women need to close the gap and achieve the careers they want and deserve.
About the authors:
Claire Shipman and Katty Kay are both veteran journalists based in Washington DC, with history-making moments in their multi-decade careers. Both women have covered the White House extensively, reported on multiple presidential elections, the Trump and Clinton administrations, financial collapses, and the wars in Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq. Advocates for change when it comes to issues vital to women, and developing a much needed confidence movement for women of all ages—Claire and Katty are moving the needle with the work they both do as authors, public speakers, moms, wives and thought leaders. Together, they have authored three highly successful books including the New York Times bestselling books The Confidence Code and The Confidence Code For Girls.
