Jamila Rizvi in conversation with Daryl Karp on Jamila's new book 'Not just lucky. Why women do the work but don't take the credit'

Jamila Rizvi
6.00PM to 7.00PM
  • Jamila Rizvi

Jamila Rizvi will be in conversation with Daryl Karp on Jamila's new book Not Just Lucky. Why Women Do The Work But Don't Take The Credit, which exposes the secret shame of Australian workplaces: that offices, factories, shops and worksites remain gendered, unfair and unequal. Jamila's book explores the confidence deficit holding women back, the barriers to career success this can create, and how they might be overcome. Accessible and timely, this is essential reading for Australian women.
