Publisher's Summary

Women are suffering from a crisis of confidence about work. Accustomed to being overlooked and undervalued, even when women do get to the top, they explain their success away as 'luck'. But it's not.

Not Just Lucky exposes the structural and cultural disadvantages that rob women of their confidence - often without them even realising it. Drawing on case studies, detailed research and her own experience in politics and media, Jamila Rizvi is the warm, witty and wise friend you've been waiting for. She'll give you everything you need to start fighting for your own success and for a more inclusive, equal workplace for all. (She'll also bring the red wine.)

This unashamedly feminist career manifesto is for women who worry they'll look greedy if they ask for more money. It's for women who dream big but dread the tough conversations. It's for women who get nervous, stressed and worried and seem to overthink just about everything. It will help you realise that you're not just lucky. You're brilliant.

Such an important message with practical, take-away advice, delivered seamlessly by the writer herself. Highly recommended.

Fascinating book

I listened to this book on audible and found it fascinating. Jamla Rizvi provides an interesting blend of 'story' with research and statistical information which together deliver a strong message. It has made me re-evaluate my approach to my work relationships and challenge (gently) some of the gender bias I meet every day.

I was going to say this should be compulsory reading for every girl when she turns 18 but, you know what, I think it should be compulsory for everyone to read, regardless of gender.
