Description

Your gender stats are tumbling, women aren’t advancing, their feedback is poor, and too many are leaving. What’s going on?

Women navigating a traditionally male-dominated technical sector too frequently feel invisible, frustrated, and undervalued in the workplace. Lauren Neal has been there, and she’s developed tried-and-tested approaches that male-dominated organizations can take to motivate and retain women. Because only a truly empowered, diverse workforce can drive the best business outcomes and innovations.

Inspired by real-life stories, Valued at Work gives you the tools to take control and drive real change without alienating any of the workforce!

Lauren Neal is an award-winning chartered engineer and chartered project professional in the energy industry. Having worked with men and women offshore, onshore and onsite on multimillion-dollar projects across the globe since 2005, she is a sought-after speaker and writer championing gender equity within STEM.

Advance Praise

As we aim to get more women into careers in STEM industries, we can’t let them down by then allowing them to face toxic working cultures. As a woman reading this book, I recognise so many of the behaviours called out, and know many other women who would, too. There are some great tips in here to help you push back when faced with things a man simply wouldn’t be asked to do, let alone tolerate, most probably. But ultimately this is a book that men need to read. You may recognise some of the poor behaviours called out in yourself and others, and I applaud and thank any man that picks up this book to educate themselves. I ask you then to get a copy for a friend and be more ‘Markus’ and hold more ‘Steves’ to account to help shape a workplace that enables more women to flourish. Samantha Niblett, Founder of Labour: Women in Tech


This is a great read; the scenarios Lauren highlights are very powerful (and sometimes cringeworthy) examples of what really happens in organisations and which must continue to be addressed. I absolutely love the ‘top tips’ sections and will be revisiting these! Lisa Waterhouse, Head of UK Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, National Grid


A very interesting format for male allies to learn how they can support women in the workplace! A great and easy read addressing much-needed conversations around inclusion – five stars! Vanessa Vallely OBE, Founder and CEO, WeAreTheCity and WeAreTechWomen
