Ever felt pressured to be loud, pushy, aggressive and Type A to do well at work? Of course you have. We all have. Well, you don’t have to be loud to be a good leader. Heard of quiet leadership?
Drop what you’re doing and Google images for ‘working woman’, ‘working mother’ or ‘multitasking woman’, like any brand manager or planner’s had to do for a presentation. Take the results in. Done? Okay. Now look at this hilarious takedown of women in stock photographs. My sides are still hurting!
10 sexist scenarios that women face at work. I’ve actually had a male boss tell me I looked great in my dress, and then get pissed that I didn’t simper. No. It went like this: Eyebrow Raise —->curt “Thanks.” —> The End. But that don’t fly so well hahn?
An ode to being almost 30. My favourite bit: “But even for women who realize they still have a lot of things to figure out, around age 30 a sense of acceptance begins to settle in. It’s when many of us experience our first big career payoffs, and allow ourselves to exhale a little because for once it doesn’t feel like we’re building our lives from scratch. On the cusp of 30 — in stark contrast with prior milestones like college graduation — you’re set up to finally start living your best life, or at least a realistic approximation of it. You realize you’ll never be a wunderkind, and you’re okay with that. In general, you give way fewer fucks.”
