Be politically savvy and smash the glass ceiling

We all know about the glass ceiling and all the challenges that women can face in the workplace. And we all know that there are a lot of things in politics, business and society that need to change to break down these obstacles. But let’s face it – these are big issues! And they’re not going to change overnight.

So, the question is: what can we do to help ourselves climb the career ladder?

This is just one of the questions that W-Tech aimed to answer. One workshop aimed to help attendees by informing them how to become more politically savvy – ran by Michelle Brailsford from Jupiter Consulting Group, the workshop gave a useful insight into how to become more of a political ‘animal’. 

A survey that womenintechnology carried out last year showed that 77% of female technologists didn’t feel that they had the sufficient skills to manage politics effectively in the office – with over half saying they’d been a victim of sabotage or labelling. Handling office politics is obviously a big issue for female professionals, so we’ve put together a white paper based on Michelle’s presentation which will hopefully be of use!
