Marissa Orr - Lean Out

The Truth about Women, Power, and the Workplace, a Business Book Talk & Signing


More than 50 years since the passage of the Equal Pay Act, the wage gap still hovers at 80 percent. Only 5 percent of CEOs in the Fortune 500 are women. Author Marissa Orr will discuss and sign Lean Out: The Truth about Women, Power, and the Workplace ($27.99 HarperCollins Leadership), an ambitious attempt to answer the question few dare to ask: What have we gotten wrong about women at work?

Based on research and personal experiences, Lean Out is inspired by the journey of Orr, a single mom trying to succeed in her 15-year career at the world's top tech giants. In an eye-opening account, Orr exposes the systemic dysfunction at the heart of today's most powerful corporations and how their pursuit to close the gender gap has come at the expense of female well-being. This book presents a revolutionary path forward, to change the life trajectories of women in the corporate world and beyond.
