NATIONAL BESTSELLER

The world has changed in the wake of the #MeToo movement. What comes next? Going beyond the message of Lean In and The Confidence Code, Joanne Lippman, Gannett’s Chief Content Officer, offers solutions to help professionals solve gender gap issues and achieve parity at work in this inclusive and realistic handbook. Newly updated by the author to include a cheat sheet for taking positive action now, this timely, essential book also offers tools for having tough—but necessary—discussions.

Companies with more women in senior leadership perform better by virtually every financial measure, and women employees help boost creativity and can temper risky behavior—such as the financial gambles behind the 2008 economic collapse. Yet in the United States, ninety-five percent of Fortune 500 chief executives are men, and women hold only seventeen percent of seats on corporate boards. More men are reaching across the gender divide, genuinely trying to reinvent the culture and transform the way we work together. Despite these good intentions, fumbles, missteps, frustration, and misunderstanding continue to inflict real and lasting damage on women’s careers.

What can the Enron scandal teach us about the way men and women communicate professionally? How does brain circuitry help explain men’s fear of women’s emotions at work? Why did Kimberly Clark blindly have an all-male team of executives in charge of their Kotex tampon line? In That’s What She Said, veteran media executive Joanne Lipman raises these intriguing questions and more to find workable solutions that individual managers, organizations, and policy makers can employ to make work more equitable and rewarding for all professionals.

Filled with illuminating anecdotes, data from the most recent relevant studies, and stories from Lipman’s own journey to the top of a male-dominated industry, That’s What She Said is a book about success that persuasively shows why empowering women as true equals is an essential goal for us all—and offers a roadmap for getting there.

Reviews:

“It’s great we are talking the talk but Joanne Lipman’s cutting edge research and razor sharp advice will help men and women alike start walking the walk (toward a more equitable workplace).”
— Katie Couric

“At last! That’s What She Said is so timely—and so needed. It’s the ultimate guide for women (and men) who are determined to close the gender gap. Lively and readable, it’s a game-changer in how we understand gender relations--and how we can break down barriers, right now.”
— Sallie Krawcheck, CEO, Ellevest

“Insightful and timely. The points Joanne Lipman makes in That’s What She Said are right on target for today’s new workplace. It will resonate whether you’re male or female, young or old, manager or managed, a long-term employee or just starting your career.”
— Andrew H. Tisch, Co-Chairman of the Board, and Chairman of the Executive Committee, Loews Corporation

“Attention, good guys: if you want to advocate for women but don’t want to be villainized, this book is for you. It’s a rare guide on championing gender equality that you’ll actually enjoy reading—and it’s full of strategies for improving your workplace.”
— Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take, Originals, and Option B with Sheryl Sandberg

“Joanne Lipman leaves her soapbox at home, rolls up her sleeves, and provides real solutions to complex problems. Her valuable insights are a tool kit for men and women to not only work alongside each other but to bring out each other’s best.”

“That’s What She Said is an instant classic. It’s a must-read for two groups of people: men and women.”
— Roger McNamee, venture capitalist

“Lipman, editor-in-chief of USA Today, makes a bold statement with this important book examining biases favoring men in business….This book goes a step further than Sheryl Sandberg‘s best-selling Lean In and challenges both men and women to examine their own prejudices and actively reshape work cultures to be more welcoming to women.”
— Publishers Weekly (starred review)
