Enter the draw to attend the book launch of Jamila Rizvi’s “Not Just Lucky”
Enter our competition to attend the launch of Jamila Rizvi’s new book, Not Just Lucky, which explores the barriers to career success and the confidence deficit holding women back in the workplace.
Not Just Lucky exposes the structural and cultural disadvantages that rob women of their confidence – often without them even realising it. Drawing on case studies, detailed research and her own experience in politics and media, Jamila Rizvi is the warm, witty and wise friend you’ve been waiting for. She’ll give you everything you need to start fighting for your own success and for a more inclusive, equal workplace for all. (She’ll also bring the red wine.)
This unashamedly feminist career manifesto is for women who worry they’ll look greedy if they ask for more money. It’s for women who dream big but dread the tough conversations. It’s for women who get nervous, stressed and worried, and seem to overthink just about everything.
It will help you realise that you’re not just lucky. You’re brilliant.
