Book excerpt: 'We need this message more than ever' – Malala Yousafzai Hard-hitting and uplifting true stories of the women around the world facing extreme gender inequality who, when the wider community supports them to challenge the status quo, improve life for the whole of society. A Sunday Times bestselling debut from Melinda Gates, The Moment of Lift is a timely and necessary call to action for women's empowerment. The right to: Spend your own money. Go to school. Earn an income. Access contraceptives. Work outside the home. Walk outside the home. Choose whom to marry. Get a loan. Start a business. Own property. Divorce a husband. See a doctor. Drive a car. All of these rights are denied to women in some parts of the world. 'How can we summon a moment of lift for human beings – and especially for women? Because when you lift up women, you lift up humanity.' In this moving and compelling book, Melinda shares the stories of the inspiring people she’s met during her work and travels around the world and the lessons she’s learned from them. As she writes in the introduction, “That is why I had to write this book – to share the stories of people who have given focus and urgency to my life. I want all of us to see ways we can lift women up where we live.” Melinda’s unforgettable narrative is backed by startling data as she presents the issues that most need our attention – from child marriage to lack of access to contraceptives to gender inequity in the workplace. And, for the first time, she writes about her personal life and the road to equality in her own marriage. Throughout, she shows how there has never been more opportunity to change the world – and ourselves. When we lift others up, they lift us up, too.

This book was released on 2020-06-12 with total page 610 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Globally, women are facing social, economic, and cultural barriers impeding their autonomy and agency. Accelerated women empowerment programs often fail to attain their targets as envisaged by the policymakers due to a variety of reasons, with the most prominent being the deep-rooted cultural norms ingrained within society. In the era of globalization, empowerment of women demands new approaches and strategies that encourage the mainstreaming of gender equality as a societal norm. The Handbook of Research on New Dimensions of Gender Mainstreaming and Women Empowerment is a critical scholarly publication that examines global gender issues and new strategies for the promotion of women empowerment and gender mainstreaming in various spheres of women’s lives, including education and ICT, economic participation, health and sexuality, mental health, aging, law and judiciary, leadership, and decision making. It provides a comprehensive coverage of all major gender issues with novel ideas on gender mainstreaming being contributed by men and women authors from multidisciplinary backgrounds. Gender perspective and intersectional approach in the discourses make this handbook a unique contribution to the scholarship of social sciences and humanities. The book provides new theoretical inputs and practical directions to academicians, sociologists, social workers, psychologists, managers, lawyers, policy makers, and government officials in their efforts at gender mainstreaming. With a wide range of conceptual richness, this handbook is an excellent reference guide to students and researchers in programs pertaining to gender/women's studies, cultural studies, economics, sociology, social work, medicine, law, and management.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Why She Must Lead shares Vasudha Sharma’s personal story and her interviews with many women who played a crucial part in raising questions and forming solutions regarding the leadership gap. Vasudha immigrated to the United States fifteen years ago looking for better opportunities and a closer look at what the glass ceiling looks like in one of the world’s most advanced nations. Today, that ceiling shows some cracks from the recent trend of more women in C suites and for the first time, a woman of color as the Vice President of the United States. But how long will it take for a big impact to shatter it? Inspired by people she has met around the world, Vasudha sketches out a dream in Why She Must Lead where issues like the pay gap, broken rungs, and lack of mentorship can be filtered out systematically, and workplaces can act to lift the most underrepresented group of women. Vasudha presents sentiments, fears, pain, and challenges with compassion and humility. She kindles the call for women of color to challenge the status quo and lead with purpose. The vision in Why She Must Lead allows women to: • Analyze reports related to the leadership gap for minority women • Develop understanding regarding the causes for a leaky talent pipeline • Act to create personalized approaches toward eliminating barriers and bias • Deepen their insight about how to minimize the leadership gap • Rise as a leader to champion equity goals for themselves or their organization

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This is the first in-depth examination of the important ongoing fusion of activism, capitalism, and social change masterfully told through a compelling narrative filled with vivid stories and striking studies. Today, corporations and their executives are at the front lines of some of the most important and contentious social and political issues of our time, such as voting rights, gun violence, racial justice, immigration reform, climate change, and gender equality. Why is this sea change in business and activism happening? How should executives and activists engage one another to create meaningful progress? What are potential pitfalls and risks for each side? What can they learn from each other? What first principles should guide leaders moving forward? The Capitalist and the Activist offers an engaging and thoughtful look at the new reality of corporate social activism—its driving forces, promises and perils, and implications for our businesses and personal lives. Weaving deep research and fascinating stories that span business, entertainment, history, science, and politics, Tom Lin provides an insightful road map for how society arrived here and a practical compass for moving forward. Drawing together examples from the civil rights movement, campaign finance litigation, gun regulation, Black Lives Matter, the Confederate flag controversy, the Trump presidency, and other historical events, Lin brilliantly reveals and charts the course for a changing society of capitalists and activists seeking both profit and progress. The Capitalist and the Activist is a must-read for anyone trying to understand the emerging future of activism, business, and politics.

Download or read book Leaders Who Lust written by Barbara Kellerman and published by Cambridge University Press. This book was released on 2020-09-30 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Among our greatest leaders are those driven by impulses they cannot completely control - by lust. Lust is not, however, an abstraction, it has definition. Definition that, given the impact of leaders who lust, is essential to extract. This book identifies six types of lust with which leaders are linked: 1. Power: the ceaseless craving to control. 2. Money: the limitless desire to accrue great wealth. 3. Sex: the constant hunt for sexual gratification. 4. Success: the unstoppable need to achieve. 5. Legitimacy: the tireless claim to identity and equity. 6. Legacy: the endless quest to leave a permanent imprint. Each of the core chapters focuses on different lusts and features a cast of characters who bring lust to life. In the real world leaders who lust can and often do have an enduring impact. This book therefore is counterintuitive - it focuses not on moderation, but on immoderation.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: How to live your best life, no matter your age? How best to approach the challenges and opportunities of middle to later life—like raising children, caring for parents, managing and inspiring others, and staying on top of your career and what comes next? In Live Life in Crescendo Stephen R. Covey sets out to answer these questions, outlining his vision for those in the prime of your life, whatever age you may be. To live life in crescendo is to continually grow in contribution, learning, and influence. In the same way that music builds on previous notes but leaves us anticipating the next note, a life builds on the past but unfolds in the future. The Crescendo Mentality urges readers to use whatever you have—your time, talents, skills, resources, gifts, passion, money, influence—to enrich the lives of people around you. Published posthumously, Live Life in Crescendo is a life-changing and life-affirming book infused with Covey’s generosity and wisdom.
