Her Way To The Top by Hira Ali takes an honest look at the many challenges women face as they attempt to climb the professional ladder. Her journey from Pakistan, to Dubai and then to London opened her eyes to the fact that women across the globe are facing the same struggles in their professional life. This led Hira to conduct a survey of over 300 working women where she discovered the top three causes for women being held back in their carer are FOMO (Fear of Missing Out), Imposter Syndrome and Time Poverty. Her Way To The Top reveals the universal internal and external roadblocks that can impede a woman’s climb to the top, regardless of her culture or geography.
Hira says, “Personally, I advocate empowering your own self first. As much I’d love to change the world, I am well aware that my circle of influence is the strongest around myself. Yes, undoubtedly, I am passionate about building more inclusive work environments and I fully intend on playing my part in the wider picture by raising my voice and pointing out any inequalities whenever and wherever required. However, I am also of the opinion that I am and always will be my own best rescuer first and foremost! I want to be that strong feminist, who will first bring her ‘own house in order’ before moving on to tackle the external hurdles because I believe that by conquering our internal challenges we will be better equipped to deal with the external ones. After all, whether the challenge is internal or external, change does begin with me.”
Each chapter of Her Way To The Top uncovers the key challenges that women are facing followed by valuable practical tips to overcoming these challenges. All women will identify with at least one section of Hira’s writing, if not all, and will find out how many other women are in the same boat too. Women across the globe are facing these challenges and by simply realising that we are not struggling alone we find the courage to keep climbing to the top. A well-researched, thorough book with modern, relevant keys to dealing with the everyday challenges that working women face, leaving us with no excuses to smash those glass ceilings!
Hira’s book is a must read for any woman wanting to navigate the obstacles on the journey to success.
