⇕ Own It: The Power of Women at Work library ⥫ Ebook By Sallie Krawcheck ⧔ ⇕ Own It: The Power of Women at Work library ⥫ Ebook By Sallie Krawcheck ⧔ Chapter 1How the World of Work Is Changing and Why Thats Good News for WomenAsk for the raise Negotiate like a man, but not too much like a man Be helpful in the office, but dont become the work wife But do find a work husband Use silence as a tool Speak up But dont up speak Lower your voice to be really heard Develop the all important gravitas Be forceful, but not too forceful, or you wont be likable Dress like your boss.The advice out there for women in the workplace is dizzying, and I havent even gotten to the whole work life balance debate We can have it all Oh no, wait, we cant Well, maybe we can, but only if we dont expect to have it all at once or if we marry just the right person or if we have our kids early or later but not too late.It all boils down to the same advice Change And even Act like you know a man.Its exhausting.It cant be denied that, to quote the great Loretta Lynn, weve come a long way, baby Im proof positive of that In my grandmothers and even my mothers generation, a woman like me at the senior levels of Wall Street, the ultimate boys club, holding top jobs at some of the biggest financial firms on the planet, and now founding my own digital investment startup, Ellevest, would have been unheard of.But heres the thing Contrary to conventional wisdom, I didnt do it by following the old rules I didnt do it by trying to act like a man, or beat them at their own game I didnt do it in spite of being a woman.With hindsight I can see that I did it because Im a woman, because I embraced and invested in the powerful and unique strengths that, research shows, can make women valuable employees, terrific team players, and effective leaders And because I brought those qualities unabashedly and unapologetically to work.Did I encounter my share of sexism along the way You know it, and youll read some of these harrowing stories in this book For example, in the early days of my career, every day began with me finding a photocopy of a penis on my desk Every day Bright side I managed to keep in shape by using the stairs to do all of my copying on a different floor And was my career a straight line Absolutely not Ill talk about how holding true to those same qualities meant that I also had some real and public career setbacks, but Ill also talk about how those same qualities helped me bounce back from them, and even move my career further forward in the process.Has my success as a woman in a mans world been, in many ways, the exception rather than the rule You can bet your bottom dollar on that, too When I worked on senior management teams on Wall Street, there was rarely a time when I wasnt the only woman or one of only a couple of women in the room Still today, just 4 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs are women,1 and women make up less than 19 percent of the members of corporate boards.2 There are literally men named John, Robert, William, or James on corporate boards than there are women.3 And when women do move into senior business roles, its still so rare so utterly astounding that it garners press attention, always with the tired, but inevitable, questions about work life balance, how does she do it and, too often, the even insulting question of what is she wearing while shes doing it.Whats , we women still earn just 78 cents on mens dollar 5264 cents if we are women of color.4 At this rate, we wont reach gender pay parity until 2133.5 Professional women overwhelmingly report that gender discrimination still exists at their companies some 63 percent say it is subtle and 26 percent say its overt.6 And after all of our hard work, we women do not invest our earnings into the markets to the same extent men do depending on our income, this can cost us literally hundreds of thousands, or even millions, of dollars over the course of our lifetimes All of this can leave us financially dependent on men.Weve come a long way, baby But some things are still a little 1958.If our economy were humming along, we might sigh and dismiss all this as a feminist issue But we dont have the luxury of throwing up our hands and declaring it something for the Gloria Steinems of the next generations to sort out The fact is that the gender gap in business and in investing has coincided with chronic underemployment, sluggish economic growth, the retirement savings crisis, growing income inequality, and fear for the future of the middle class.But this is all ripe for change, and that change can come fast.I would go so far as to say that we are at a major turning point in the role of women at work The role of women is on the brink of change because the world of business is on the brink of change the kind of change, as youll read in the pages ahead, that gives us power in the workforce than ever.So what is driving this change And why can it happen now I believe there are four key catalysts.1 The Increasing Recognition of What We Women Bring to the PartyFor years, as I said earlier, I sort of fought the idea that women are different from men Hey, were all just people, and each of us is unique I always resisted the notion that either gender men or women might possess inherent qualities that made it inherently different or better at business than the other But as a recovering research analyst, I always try to let the research speak to me, and when I began to drill down on these issues, what I found surprised me The research shows that women do bring different traits to the office that are good for business Okay, even great for business Among them advanced risk awareness a holistic perspective and ability to juggle complexity and multitask long term thinking a focus on relationships and team building a love of lifelong learning and acute awareness of meaning, purpose, and social impact.Well spend time on each of these traits in Chapter 2, where well talk about the evidence showing how these traits can make us, to put it bluntly, pretty awesome awesome leaders, awesome team members, and awesome employees And why that in turn means that women, and particularly women in leadership positions, make those diverse companies innovative, profitable, and better places to work.Think Im exaggerating Study after study shows that the companies with greater gender diversity outperform others on many measures These include Improved financial performance, in some cases dramatically better performance, with higher returns on investment, lower risk, narrower gender pay gaps, greater long term focus, and lower cost of borrowing.7 Better customer service and better public image.8 Increased ability to attract the best talent.9 More creative and effective decision making The power of diversity is so great that diverse teams outperform smarter ones.10 Okay, wow Benefits also include Higher worker engagement and better morale.11 This is a biggie Increased innovation.12 Yes, you read that correctly Better stockholder returns.13 You read that one correctly, too And thats not just true over time, but is recognized pretty quickly by the market And if your company is a startup, the benefits of diversity exist there, too Again, not by a little one source reports 63 percent better investment performance from companies with a female founder.14The research is loud and clear a company with women in leadership positions is healthier on every level, and can bring out the best in everyone.The fact that this research exists in the first place is a sign of the growing recognition of the power of women in the workplace and in the economy and reflects an emerging understanding of the qualities we women bring to the party Its evidence that the view that closing the gender gaps at work can be good for everybody not just women themselves is beginning to take hold.So this is good.But is this recognition enough to drive real change Is it enough to convince those already in power to work to toss aside whatever gender stereotypes or misconceptions they adhere to you know, such as that women arent tough enough to succeed in the cutthroat, high rung world of business, or are too emotional to make strong leaders Is it enough to persuade them to further open the doors for people who are not a lot like them Is it enough to convince the boss to promote Susie instead of Jimmy even though Jimmy reminds him so darn much of himself when he was younger in pursuit of the positive ripple effects of diversity Maybe.But also maybe not.And it may not matter Because heres what else is different going forward.2 The Business World Is Rapidly Changing and So Are the Drivers of Success in a Way That Makes the Skills We Women Bring to the Workplace More Valuable than EverI dont think its controversial to say that technology is fundamentally changing the workplace as we know it.Remember when gathering information was costly and took forever Remember when the only ways to engage with the customer at scale were through magazines, newspapers, and broadcast TV Remember when you could dictate to the customer, and they had no way to talk back Well, all of that has changed, and the pace of further change is only increasing Success at work now is less about having and hoarding information and about the ability to analyze and synthesize that information with acuity Its less about simply building the best product and hoping for the money to follow and about building the kinds of relationships with customers that sustain profits over the long term Business is complex, and so it requires the ability to make and understand connections, the ability to see the forest through the trees.The ability to see problems holistically, emotional intelligence, communication things we females can be awfully good at thus matter every day So the workplace is changing in ways that, research shows, play to womens innate skills And in turn the that we invest in these skills skills like empathy, love of learning, and acute awareness of purpose the better positioned we can be to succeed.But thats not all.3 Technology Is Also Increasing Our Career Options and Thus Increasing Our PowerWhen I ran Merrill Lynch, we had in place an investment platform the most whiz bang, the most advanced one in the industry that cost than 1 billion to build.Today I run Ellevest We have built an investment platform that doesnt have all the bells and whistles of Merrills, and uses as much third party software as possible as its building blocks, but accomplishes the same fundamental functions at a tiny fraction of what Merrill spent to put its platform in place Teeny tiny.This is but one example of how, thanks to technology, all kinds of barriers to starting businesses are coming down and fast As recently as five years ago, if you wanted to start a business, you had to rent long term office space, buy expensive servers, hire coders and programmers, figure out how to put in place HR systems, and so on Today you can store information in the cloud, hire freelancers, and rent short term space at a WeWork, all for a fraction of the cost While venture capitalists dont get it on women and particularly women of color , the sources of capital for starting businesses are expanding think crowdfunding and angel investing groups So while its by no means easy to start a business trust me on this , it is easier, and cheaper.That is why and people and and women can leave the traditional, corporate career path behind for the world of entrepreneurship Just look at the businesses that are being built by women, like Jessica Herrin at Stella and Dot, Julie Wainwright at The RealReal, Jennifer Hyman at Rent the Runway, Alli Webb at Drybar, and many, many So not only do we now have the tools to make the plunge into entrepreneurship easier and are able to start businesses easily were also getting a critical mass of role models who are making this career path feel attainable than ever.Thus, it may be no wonder that women are now starting businesses at double the rate of men.15 And the bonus is that a good number of these businesses are themselves focused on the female customer, making our lives better and, in some cases, fun I get that throwing yourself whole hog into starting your own business isnt for everyone, nor does everyone have the financial resources to do so But todays technology also offers us an intermediate step, since these same tools are also enabling the explosion of flexible and part time work, to the point that these forms of employment have become true career paths and these can be ones that can coexist with the demands of family in a way that many full time corporate jobs still dont.1 Catalyst.org Knowledge Center, Women CEOs of the SP 500, February 3, 2016.2 2015 Key Findings, 2020 Gender Diversity Index, 2020wob.com, retrieved February 6, 2016.3 Jena McGregor, There
