Cohosts Leslie Grygiel and Kevin Bronson explore the "double binds" that women encounter in the workplace. Whereas male leaders are considered forthright, assertive or plain-spoken, female leaders demonstrating the same behaviors are often labeled as overly aggressive. A man may know his worth, yet a woman is a shameless self-promoter. Kevin asks: Do we men expect women to have strong leadership qualities until such time as we want them to be nurturing, like the women in our personal life? Join Leslie and Kevin as they explore what men and women can do to meet in the middle on this topic.
