When it comes to work and career, it doesn’t always seem like being a woman is a great benefit. This can be due to a lot of things, but, in this episode, Jory and Jennifer explore how certain characteristics and traits specific to the female gender can create struggles in the workplace. Does being emotional or relational ever serve as a hindrance in your professional setting? Do you have a hard time with disciplining or even firing employees? What about embracing your entrepreneurial spirit?
Join Jory and Jennifer as they discuss God-given differences between the sexes and how important it is to honor God’s design even in the workplace. They explore what it can look like to succeed professionally without sacrificing your femininity or relinquishing any of your strengths.
