July Event: Work With Me: How to Be Gender Intelligent in the Workplace
(Special bonus if you bring a guy!)
Wednesday, July 10 | 11:45am – 2:00pm | U.S. Chamber of Commerce
WHS is proud to support the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Center for Women in Business event with Barbara Annis, co-author of Work with Me! The event will address gender “blind spots”: the false assumptions and attitudes men and women have of each other, and in many ways, believe of themselves. CWB President and Founder, David Chavern, will moderate the discussion with Barbara Annis, an authority on the topic of gender in the workplace. She, along with co-author John Gray of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus fame, wrote Work with Me to take a deeper look at the biology and social influences that compel men and women to think and act as they do. Gender intelligence can lead to a competitive advantage, enabling individuals to achieve greater success and satisfaction in their professional and personal lives. It can also lead to a more harmonious work environment.
Lunch will be provided. Book sale and signing will follow the event.
THIS MONTH’s WHS BOOK CLUB SELECTION:
Work With Me
by Barbara Annis & John Gray
Work With Me is the timely collaboration of two of the world’s foremost authorities on gender relations. Barbara Annis, world-renowned expert on gender issues in the workplace, and John Gray, author of the number one relationship book of all time, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, team up to resolve the most stressful and confusing challenges facing men and women at work. Annis and Gray reveal, for the first time, survey results of over 100,000 in-depth interviews of men and women executives in over 60 Fortune 500 companies. Readers will discover the Eight Gender Blind Spots, the false assumptions and opinions men and women have of each other, and in many ways, believe of themselves. Through research, science, and stories, Annis and Gray expose the blind spots that cause our misunderstandings, miscommunications, mistrust, resentment, and frustrations at work. Readers will discover the biology and social influences that compel men and women to think and act as they do, and direct how they communicate, solve problems, make decisions, resolve conflict, lead others, and deal with stress, enabling them to achieve greater success and satisfaction in their professional and personal lives. Work With Me is the definitive work-life relational guide, filled with “ah-ha!” moments and discoveries that will remove the blind spots and enable men and women to work and succeed together.
