Synopsis: This is a new podcast series by The Straits Times to help you work smarter, think deeper, and get ahead in your work life.
They say the ones pitching against women at workplaces aren't men, but women who have crossed the bridge of success and decided to blow it up. Do such women exist and why?
What are working women up against at the workplaces, and how should they navigate them? How do men feel about being the apex body that just cannot seem to win?
Listen to this episode as we speak to Professor Chong Sin Hui, assistant professor of organisational behaviour from Nanyang Technological University, and Mr Toh Keng Hoe - a corporate executive, a part-time lecturer, a Singapore Computer Society volunteer, and most pertinently...a man.
