Why Men Win at Work: …and How We Can Make Inequality History
By Gill Whitty-Collins
Why are men still winning at work? Why are women still so under-represented in the top echelons of business and society? And why do we accept these old-fashioned barriers?Gill Whitty-Collins looks beyond the facts and figures on gender bias and uncovers the invisible discrimination that continues to sabotage us in the workplace – and limits our shared success. Addressing both men and women, she sets out the psychology of gender diversity from the perspective of real personal experience and shares her powerful insights on how to tackle the gender equality issue.
GILL WHITTY-COLLINS spent 26 years with Procter & Gamble, latterly as Vice-President running leading brands such as Olay and Pantene. She was born near Liverpool, to a Scouse Catholic working-class family, as the youngest of 3. A love of language and steely determination took Gill to study Modern & Medieval Languages at Selwyn College, Cambridge University. After graduating and with a young son in tow, she joined P&G’s marketing department and quickly progressed through the ranks. Gill thrived in the highly competitive business environment, until she reached the senior VP level and began to see and experience gender diversity issues as she moved away from the 50:50 split to a 80:20 one (men: women). It was then she began to be affected and defeated by – and saw others negatively affected by – gender diversity problems. She now strives to drive gender equality and diversity in business and our society. This is her first book.
