Reviews

"The Fix is a powerful and essential read which challenges the dominant mindset regarding women's capabilities and the high cost of false narratives which prevent them from succeeding at a level commensurate with their aptitude and skills. Insightful and thoroughly engaging, Michelle King provides practical solutions for bringing about tangible and lasting change, as well as an impassioned argument for equity that moves beyond the current discourse on women in the workplace."--Dr. Nina Ansary, author, scholar, and UN Women Global Champion for Innovation
"The Fix is critical to not only moving the conversation around equality at work forward but also providing practical solutions that can be applied in any workplace. Michelle King has taken years of data, interviews, and personal experiences and broken down the workplace to its foundation, a foundation previously built for one type of professional. In this powerful book, King crafts the future of work and offers a roadmap for crafting a new type of workplace where there is equal opportunity for all to succeed."--Kristy Wallace, CEO of Ellevate Network
"The Fix is in! Michelle King offers a lively, practical guide to achieving equality in the workplace--and shows how that benefits both men and women. Her insightful book explains why so many well-intentioned diversity programs fail, and lays out proven steps that will help all of us succeed."--Joanne Lipman, CNBC contributor and bestselling author of That's What She Said
"Michelle King's work is an insightful look into the ways we, as a society, have unwittingly bought in to the idea that women in the workplace are what's broken. The idea that in order to be successful, women need to do more or be more is simply not true, and reveals how our idea of gender stereotypes seeps into work culture and how we define what success looks like. This book is a practical walk through the ways we've failed women in the workplace and enforced harmful behavior from men, inviting us to the conclusion that women never needed fixing--we need to fix the workplace itself. The Fix starts an important conversation about how we'll win, together."--Anna Blue & Melissa Kilby, co-executive directors of Girl Up
"So much about the world of work--from workplace culture to our definition of success--was created by men, and it's not working for women or indeed for men. And it's no surprise that women pay a disproportionately high price for their participation. That's why The Fix, is so important. It's a passionate, practical roadmap for addressing inequality and finally making our workplaces work for women."--Arianna Huffington, founder of Thrive Global
"The structures in the workplace that prevent women from succeeding are the same structures that make it nearly impossible for men to become the emotionally aware, sensitive, and compassionate people--and colleagues--that we are capable of being. The Fix offers men the chance to unlearn some of the behaviors that harm us, and those around us, and invites us to shed the notion of who we are 'supposed' to be so we can do the meaningful work of learning who we truly are. Work that, when done right, allows us to become true allies in the fight to make the workplace, and the world, a more equitable place. King's book is a compelling read for all men and organizations who want to do better and are unsure of where to start."--Justin Baldoni, actor and founder of Wayfarer Entertainment
"Hammers home the point that employers are responsible for creating safe workplaces for women and for protecting them from not just harassment but also other forms of discrimination and threats to advancement."-- "Harvard Business Review"
