    Gender inequality in the workplace is not new. With women still earning roughly 80% of what men are paid, corporate discrimination is more pertinent than ever.

These issues are constantly talked about, but has anything really been done to change them?Today's guest, Holly Caplan, an award-winning sales leader for over two decades, is speaking up and fighting for change. In her new book, Surviving the D**k Clique: A Girl's Guide to Surviving the Male Dominated Corporate World, Caplan tackles this “behavior” head on. Working her way from sales representative to high level management position, she experienced discrimination first hand. Reflecting on her past experiences, she hopes to use her mistakes and humorous lessons to encourage others to take a stronger stand against uncharted gender challenges.In our candid, raw and brutally honest interview, Caplan discusses: What exactly “d**k” behavior is, how to identify it and how to shut it downHow women can effectively compete in a male-dominated environmentWhy this “d**k” behavior has to change and the first steps to do itBars, Boobs and Strip Clubs: some of the wacky and weird situations she found herself in and the life lessons she learned from eachHer message to Millennials in the workforce — both women and menAnd much more!Resource Mentioned In The EpisodeSurviving the D**k Clique: A Girl's Guide to Surviving the Male Dominated Corporate World: https://www.amazon.com/Surviving-Dick-Clique-Dominated-Corporate/dp/1543904564Website: http://hollycaplan.com/

  • 296: How Leila Janah is Embarking on Her Mission To Eradicate Poverty By Giving Work

    · As Told By Nomads

    The world’s wealthiest countries have donated over $2 trillion dollars in foreign aid to the world’s poorest people. Yet, despite this, 2.8 billion people worldwide still struggle to survive every day. We need a better solution.In GIVE WORK: Reversing Poverty One Job at a Time, social entrepreneur and Founder and CEO of Samasource and LXMI, Leila Janah contends that giving dignified, steady, fair-wage work is the most effective way to eradicate global poverty. Leila is the Founder and CEO of Samasource and LXMI, two companies that share a common social mission to end global poverty by giving work to people in need. Picking up where Dambisa Moyo’s Dead Aid leaves off, GIVE WORK debunks traditional and trendy aid models and offers much-needed solutions. One of her proposals is the tried-and- true “impact sourcing” business model Samasource uses of empowering a new generation of workers in all corners of the world—from the refugee camps of Kenya to rural Arkansas to the blighted neighborhoods of California—with the tools and resources they need to do digital work for companies like Google, Walmart, and Microsoft.Leila Janah is on a mission to eradicate poverty. She dismantles the current thinking on charity and the West’s view of those most in need; she shows how traditional aid is broken, and argues that the solution rests in progressive business models, weaving together private, public, and nonprofit sectors. Powered by Janah’s own story, GIVE WORK also puts faces to the people whose lives have been transformed through obtaining steady work and earned income.We can end extreme poverty. Janah in GIVE WORK delivers a powerful and inspiring vision for the future of the global workforce in the digital age, offering a blueprint for how companies can tap into this population of people, all while making a tremendous difference.Resources Mentioned In The EpisodeBook: GIVE WORK: Reversing Poverty One Job at a Time: https://www.amazon.com/Give-Work-Reversing-Poverty-Time/dp/0735211892Samasource: https://www.samasource.org/LXMI: https://lxmi.com/Personal Website: http://www.leilajanah.com/
