Weatherhead’s Candace Steele Flippin discusses ways for women to get ready for the workplace

Author advises women looking for advancement to get in ‘SHAPE’

NBC: Candace Steele Flippin, research fellow at Weatherhead School of Management, offered a five-step guide to help women achieve success in the workplace. “You’d be surprised to know that I start with ‘save,’” Flippin said. “That’s because, in my research, over and over again, women said the reason why they didn’t take risks in their career is because if something happened either they were the primary breadwinner in their family, which we know over 50% of women are, or they didn’t have a savings foundation to take a risk to start something new. So, they didn’t raise their hand to try.”
