Achieving success as a professional woman doesn't have to be hard

With over 30 years of experience rising through the ranks of the male-dominated world of finance, author Marja Norris knows all too well the challenges females continue to encounter in today's business culture. Over the decades, she's learned how to expertly navigate the rules and expectations of the workplace, many of which remain unclear, unspoken, or unstated to females trying to make their mark. In The Unspoken Code, Norris equips young professional women with the tools they need to succeed by shining a spotlight on the subtle, sometimes controversial, norms they face as soon as they set foot in an office.

The Unspoken Code contains no-nonsense advice to help women climb the corporate ladder with confidence, as well as valuable insights from successful businesswomen reflecting on their own journeys to the top. The book's three sections guide readers towards their professional goals by awakening their own power within, perfecting both verbal and nonverbal communication skills in aggressive business environments, and showing the significance of how their dress impacts future career opportunities.

Today's business culture is shifting towards equality, but it's not shifting fast enough. The Unspoken Code empowers women to push through barriers with moxie and gives them confidence to achieve their professional dreams.
