UK National Diversity Awards Lifetime Achiever shortlisted nominee, Maggie Georgopoulos, has spent years in male-dominated fields of business and offers advice to other women on how to succeed in these areas. She focuses her efforts on women’s empowerment and support as a diversity and cultural consultant in the fields of oil and gas, agriculture, manufacturing, automotive and construction. Now, her latest book, Up the Ladder in a Skirt: Solidifying Your Leadership, One Bold Step at a Time, is offered as a free download for a limited time through her website.
Up the Ladder in a Skirt documents Georgopoulos’s first-hand experience of climbing the corporate ladder as a female in a male-dominated field. Through her unique perspective, Georgopoulos has created a handbook for those who are struggling to move ahead in their respective fields by offering them ways to create cultural change within their organizations and to fashion a balanced leadership equation.
Up the Ladder in a Skirt offers step-by-step strategies for climbing the leadership ladder, including how to use personal skills and strengths to create a stronger voice in the leadership community; how to gain leadership success as a woman in a ‘man’s world’; how to conquer the internal voices that sabotage success; and how to utilize the power of community to reach personal goals.
Georgopoulos says, “Look around you in the world of politics, business, even sport, and you’ll see proof that women are not on the rise; they have already risen. Almost unnoticed, they have been fulfilling their potential and stepping into their power for the last hundred years. Up the Ladder in a Skirt shares how this quiet revolution has been achieved.”
For a limited time, visitors to Georgopoulos’s website can receive a free copy of Up the Ladder in a Skirt, a $29 value. Additionally, Georgopoulos offers an online course through her website to allow women to utilize the principles detailed in the book. For more information, visit www.uptheladderinaskirt.com/FREE.
