The book for August is “Ladies Get Paid: The Ultimate Guide to Breaking Barriers, Owning Your Worth and Taking Command of Your Career,” by Claire Wasserman. 

“Ladies Get Paid” is an organization that champions the professional and financial advancement of women. This book follows real women who face a variety of professional challenges from salary negotiations to office politics. The book provides actionable advice and useable tools that equip and empower women to get the recognition and rewards that they deserve – and to see to it that other women are rewarded too.

The book is also a summer selection for the national AWC Book Club. AWC members can join a discussion with the author at a Zoom event on July 29. Go to womcom.org for details 

For more information on either of these events, email Carolyn Jabs at membership@awcsb.org.
