Australian women are suffering from a crisis of confidence about work. Accustomed to being overlooked and undervalued, even when women do get to the top, they explain their success away as 'luck'. But it's not. Not Just Lucky exposes the structural and cultural disadvantages that rob women of their confidence - often without them even realising it. It's a practical toolkit that will help you overcome imposter syndrome, deal with difficult bosses, avoid burnout, and finally put your hand up for that big promotion.
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.
