Better Together provides powerful and implementable solutions to fostering gender equality in your business. As a result, your business will be more successful, your customers will be happier with better products/services, and your employees will be much more fulfilled. Women are one half of our species and over half of the earth's population. There is no product or service women don't buy. And yet, today only twenty-four women CEOs lead America's Fortune 500 companies.

If you survey the landscape of founders who've created the most successful companies of recent years, you will mostly find white males. Zuckerberg, Dorsey, Cheskey, Kalanick, Evan Spiegel-captains of Facebook, Twitter, Airbnb, Snapchat-revolutionary founders who have created massively valuable companies impacting billions. Does this mean that women don't have great ideas, that women don't build and lead great companies? The goal of Better Together is to provide managers, employees, CEOs, and board members a guide to build a sustainable robust female workforce at all levels.

Systemvoraussetzungen:

Computer (Windows; MacOS X; Linux): Installieren Sie bereits vor dem Download die kostenlose Software Adobe Digital Editions (siehe E-Book Hilfe).

Tablet/Smartphone (Android; iOS): Installieren Sie bereits vor dem Download die kostenlose App Adobe Digital Editions (siehe E-Book Hilfe).

E-Book-Reader: Bookeen, Kobo, Pocketbook, Sony, Tolino u.v.a.m. (nicht Kindle)

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
