Cie & Lori answer these questions:
1) You’ve structured the book into a series of 31 examples of where collectively you experienced gender bias in the workplace. You try to help 3 different archetypes in dealing with these situations. What are each of the three archetypes and their importance to addressing these issues?
2) Let’s start with another one of your examples you called “father of the year.” Why are working moms criticized and working dads lauded?
3) How do administrative chores often fall victim to gender bias?
4) Should women avoid the word “sorry” at work?
5) Why is the “meeting before the meeting” so important to staying in the loop?
6) How do you handle a situation when you sense you are not welcome like the golf foursome?
7) How would you encourage these archetypes, particularly managers, to make use of your book?
