Join us to discuss Get Your Career in SHAPE by Candace Steele Flippin 

Instead of holding our careers down or back, women can rise―on our terms. Are you ready to own your power and take the next step in your career?

With groundbreaking research on women's leadership, Dr. Candace Steele Flippin's guidebook empowers women to "challenge the glass ceiling system within their own minds" (Tyree C. Daniels, executive chairman at Memphis College Preparatory).

Women's careers are held back by cultural norms, gender bias, sexism, and self-policing.

And too often, their self-efficacy―the belief in their ability to be successful―is at risk.

TEDx speaker Dr. Candace Steele Flippin has been recognized as one of the Most Influential Black Executives in Corporate America and knows firsthand what women in the workforce must overcome.

In this revolutionary book, Dr. Candace Steele Flippin delivers practical career guidance to accelerate women's leadership and professional development. This tested framework pairs her experience as a communications executive with her research as an engaged management scholar in the Weatherhead School of Management community at Case Western Reserve University.

Her game-changing SHAPE career framework is organized into five accessible steps:

  • Save: Create and nurture a strong financial future
  • Hard work: Gain alignment with your boss on your impact
  • Advocate: Stand up for yourself, speak up, and get noticed
  • Persevere: Keep going, keep trying, and know when it's time to leave
  • Educate: Continually advance your knowledge base and improve upon your skillsets

With new research insights, as well as personal experiences from Dr. Candace Steele Flippin and other accomplished female leaders, Get Your Career in SHAPE provides a realistic overview of the roadblocks women confront in the workplace―and how to overcome them effectively.
