For many female employees, working in the male-dominated jungle of Wall Street can be frustrating. Gender-based stereotypes seem to pigeonhole women, holding them back from pay increases, promotions and mobility. Finance professional Tamara Lashchyk gives women the inside track to getting ahead, sharing her go-to tips and career insight with her new book, “Lose the Gum: A Survival Guide for Women on Wall Street.”

With her 25 years of experience, across multiple Wall Street investment banks, Lashchyk sheds light on tactics for navigating corporate culture and enhancing one’s career in “Lose the Gum.” Her book also highlights Lashchyk’s professional background and features candid advice on how to succeed in a competitive field.

“I’ve watched as dozens of young women sabotage their own careers and shut themselves out of opportunities,” Lashchyk said. “As a result, the industry sees few women succeed. One thing that stands in the way of female success, on an individual and collective basis, is ourselves. Lose the Gum will help women get over that mental hump of ingrained inferiority.”

“Lose the Gum” teaches readers how to project confidence while working to obtain the jobs and promotions they deserve. For more information on Lashchyk and her book, please visit
