4 Phases of Women's Careers
In the final graphic book in her gender-balance trilogy, Avivah Wittenberg-Cox focuses on how women experience the world of work. She reveals, in her trademark, witty, graphic style the very different career phases that women go through, and how most current work structures are geared to male careers - oblivious to the impact of this on large numbers of women’s careers. When Avivah presents her 4 Phases to audiences it is both a revelation (to executives and women alike) and a confirmation for many women, in their second phase and beyond, of their actual experience. Something they always wish they had known… earlier.
