Women have made great strides in the workplace, but there’s still work to be done. Women remain underrepresented in management and executive roles, have less access to senior leaders, and are more likely to face harassment and discrimination at work. Women also continue to earn less than their male counterparts, despite the fact that women are more likely to hold a bachelor’s degree and negotiate for raises.

If you’re a driven woman, these statistics can be pretty discouraging. But while obstacles remain for women in the workplace, there are also lots of resources available to help women get ahead at work. These are the best tips, tricks, and resources to help you succeed in the workplace.

Asking for a Raise or Promotion

Women in the workplace have to learn how to advocate for themselves. However, it’s not enough to waltz into your boss’s office and ask for a promotion or higher pay. If you want to advance in your workplace, you need to be prepared to argue your case. These resources will help women take the next step in their careers.

Succeeding in Male-Dominated Industries

Landing that promotion may be harder if you’re the odd woman out at work. Women in male-dominated industries face bias that frequently shuts them out of leadership positions and career development opportunities. Some women cope by becoming “one of the boys,” but that only reinforces the very stereotypes that leave women behind. Instead of giving in or giving up, use these tips to move up in your male-dominated field.

Finding Female-Focused Support

Do you feel like you’re constantly swimming upstream? If you’re dealing with a difficult work environment, look outside the office for the support you need. Here are three places where you can connect with other professional women for advice, support, and career advancement opportunities.

As a professional woman, it can sometimes feel like the deck is stacked against you. But while many obstacles remain for women at work, there are also more resources, opportunities, and camaraderie than ever. Rather than letting career challenges get you down, tap into resources like these to achieve the thriving career you deserve.
