Breaking the Double Bind

June 6, 2023

Have you ever been chastised for speaking up at work, even though your boss encouraged you to speak up more often?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you have been “double binded.” Hear success stories from dynamic women who, against all odds, have intentionally broken the double bind by remaining authentic and true to themselves.
