The world of engineering, resources and construction has long been the domain of men. With cultures built around aggression, dominance and hyper-masculinity, your only two options were to “harden up princess” or “Fit In or F-Off”. Being yourself, particularly if your self didn’t fit the prevailing culture, was not acceptable. So what does this mean for the women today who work, or want to work, in these traditionally masculine industries?
In Rules of the Game, Teagan Dowler, Organisational development and Leadership Coach and founder of The Blue Collared Woman, shares her own and other’s experiences, to explore the reality of being a woman in the masculine workplace. Never before has a book presented such an honest account of the realities faced by women in these industries and succinctly delivers recommendations on how to overcome the challenges and make the most of the advantages. This book is an essential guide for any woman about to commence her career in engineering, resources and construction or anyone who wants to better understand these industries to achieve success.
