Just Work: A Gender Equity Advocates Network Book Discussion (3 Sessions)
Just Work is far from the reality in most of our workplaces. This book will push every one of your buttons because you will know that Scott's definitions of "just" work are a far cry from the way we work, and we can do better. Justice, Just Work shall we pursue!

About the Event
This book by Kim Scott, author of the acclaimed book Radical Candor, will push every one of your buttons. It will, because you will know that Scott's definitions of "just" work are a far cry from the way we work--and the workplaces in which we're working, in the Jewish community and beyond. Get a bit closer to the JUSTice we seek and challenge yourself to reflect on what JUST work might really look like. Don't expect this to be an easy read. Instead, be uncomfortable, provoked, but perhaps then optimistic and ready to get to work remaking our workplaces to be the respectful, collaborative and just places they can be. Justice, just work, we shall pursue.
Just Work looks at six different workplace injustices: bias, prejudice, bullying, discrimination, verbal harassment, and physical violations. If you've been fortunate enough to escape these in your professional lives, come as an advocate or ally, as an upstander or as a leader. If you've experienced them, come learn how to stand for yourself, amplify your voice and interrupt broken processes on the way to repairing and healing our workplaces and ourselves.

"It’s possible to create a workplace environment in which “everyone can collaborate and respect one another’s individuality,” advises CEO coach Scott (Radical Candor) in this timely guide for leaders struggling to address workplace inequity. Workplace injustice, Scott writes, “is actually six different problems: bias, prejudice, bullying, discrimination, verbal harassment, and physical violations.” In explaining each, she uses examples of bad experiences (her own and others’) and lays out the steps for building toward “just work,” a play on words meaning the space to focus on business, and an equitable environment. Scott explains the difference between bias, prejudice, and bullying, and offers appropriate responses for each: one effective way to deal with to bias, she writes, is to “use an ‘I’ statement to invite the person to see things from your perspective.” Scott includes success stories of organizations doing it right, such as OpenTable, whose CEO “made improving gender diversity a priority.” Scott refuses to let readers off the hook: “It’s simple, even if it’s not easy,” she insists, and “we can’t afford to screw around.” Urgent and actionable, this passionate manifesto will be a welcome addition to any leader’s desk."
