Join us on January 16 at 7pm as we welcome Mikaela Kiner author of the new book Female Firebrands. She will chat about her book and perhaps read some sections that are particularly inspiring for women in the workplace. Join us for an empowering evening!
If readers are not sure what a firebrand is, they are certain to find out in Mikaela Kiner’s powerful first book. Women of all generations will nod in recognition at the stories of 13 successful professional women from diverse backgrounds and industries as they recount the challenges they’ve faced in their careers and how they have overcome bias, sexism, and the power imbalance.
Female Firebrands is an honest, modern, and solutions-oriented guide for dealing with situations women know all too well: sexual harassment, not being taken seriously, and being talked over, passed over, underpaid, and underappreciated. Mid-career women will read this book and know they’re not alone. Women earlier in their careers can save years of heartache and frustration by learning what’s worked for women who came before them.
