Andie Kramer and Al Harris are married practicing lawyers. They have been mentoring women and speaking and writing about gender communication for more than 30 years. Andie and Al offer women unique, balanced, and highly practical advice they can use to prevent gender biases from slowing or derailing their careers.
Andie and Al also present arresting information and compelling examples for male audiences to make them aware of and sensitive to the gender biases that hold women back—even in the most well-intentioned organizations. This power couple provides organizations—business and professional—with concrete, non- disruptive suggestions for workplace changes that will make women’s career opportunities more comparable to men’s.
Authors of the popular book Breaking Through Bias: Communication Techniques for Women to Succeed at Work, this power couple brings a unique viewpoint to both women and men looking to navigate gender bias. Their new book coming out soon, It’s Not You, It’s The Workplace: Women’s Conflict At Work And The Bias That Built It, addresses the biases between women and how to break through the glass ceiling together.
In today’s conversation, Andie and Al help us understand that the glass ceiling still exists even in the most well-intentioned environments and what we can do to keep moving forward while working together. We explore the differences between men and women in the way each approaches performance evaluations, business meetings, and mentorship. Andie and Al teach us about impression management, surprising studies among millennial men, why we haven’t seen real improvement in women’s advancement since the mid-90s, and what we can do about it to shatter the glass ceiling once and for all.
