African-American women in the workplace have been stereo-typed as "crabs in a pot." They are perceived as catty, undermining, positive and hard to work for. There are several characteristics that keep many women from reaching the pinnacle of their career. They are attitude, behavior and hidden agendas. Women in the Workplace: Keeping the Lid On, explores real life experiences from an African American author's perspective. These experiences exist, yet are seldom discussed. The author shares some of the dynamics and behaviors of women and how a certain class of women continues to keep each other down versus lifting one another up. It also provides some positive tips and examples of phenomenal women that have inspired others and provides professional development tips on how to reach back and bring other women along for the journey, so that we all can make a social change.
