Sideways to the Top is a thought provoking book that explores how 11 women challenged the status quo and took alternative career pathways to the top.
The 10 case studies challenge many of the generalisations and stereotypes about how women achieve success, told through the stories of a diverse range of women leaders, including some seen as Australian icons and others with lower profiles who nonetheless have achieved a great deal.
The book also features:
- Chapters about the realities and current issues facing women building their careers, linking useful ideas and tools with the realities of those whose stories are told.
- An example of how one multinational corporate is changing the culture and mindset in the business towards accepting diversity as a business imperative.
- A practical checklist and action plan to help women navigate their career.
