About the book            

SOS: A survival guide for women at work is a book about gender (in)equality at work. We identify the hurdles and barriers for women to advance their careers, but also ways to address them; many of us have no problem identifying pitfalls but knowing how to change our ways is infinitely harder. We have chapters around topics such as: Leadership, Parenting, Bias, Support, Power, Guilt, Conflict, Money and more…

We frame solutions using our SOS framework:

(1) Self: what can you do yourself, (2) Others: how can others help you and how can you help others, and (3) Society: how the system and the (unwritten) rules should change. Get a sneak peak of our book by reading our chapter on Guilt that was published in the Harvard Business Review: Home - SOS Women at Work

She delivered a speech on the value of financial independence of women during the Annual Meeting of the United Nations in October 2023.
