Scenes from the Valle
Scenes from the Valley pulls the cover off Silicon Valley and tells the real story of why more women haven’t made it to the upper echelon of management. All the true stories within, reveal the normalcy and acceptance of physical and sexual misbehavior in the workplace during the 1990s. And they show what choices these women had to make to reach C-level management, and just how precarious that space was.
Unlike other books that place the blame for upward mobility on women’s behavior, Scenes from the Valley lays out the difficulties women face in climbing up to the C-suite. The book also provides a pathway for anyone who is looking for career guidance in today’s competitive marketplace.
