Dallas, Tex. (PRWEB) March 12, 2008
Her Corner Office: A Guide to Help Women Find a Place and a Voice in Corporate America is now available in a fully revised and expanded second edition.
Written by leading expert Trudy Bourgeois, Her Corner Office (Brown Books, ISBN 978-1-933285-97-9, $21.95) is the definitive guide to helping women understand what it really takes to climb the corporate ladder.
Bourgeois, one of the first African American female VPs in the consumer goods industry, said she created Her Corner Office as a means of helping other women in the workplace. According to Bourgeois, "Women represent 50% of today's workforce, but less than 16% at the executive level. It is past time to make serious strides in closing this gap. Her Corner Office was created to be the resource that does just that."
The first edition of Her Corner Office, which was released in 2004, garnered overwhelming response, says Bourgeois: "I was humbled by the thousands of people who sent letters and emails telling me that the book had made a difference in their professional and personal lives. What I also learned is that there were more topics women longed to see addressed --from how to maintain relationships to finding work-life balance, to dealing with the appalling lack of support women often receive from other women in the workforce. It became abundantly clear to me that a new edition of the book - one that delved deeper into the heart, soul, and passions of the working woman -- was needed."
The resulting fully-revised and expanded edition of Her Corner Office features several new chapters and includes a candid interview with Bourgeois' husband of twenty-seven years, Mike Bourgeois, on the intensely personal subject of being in a relationship with a driven professional woman.
Written in a clear, conversational style and filled with no-nonsense tips and advice, Her Corner Office is a must-read for any working woman.
