As of last month, only 4.6 percent of Fortune 500 companies had female CEOs. UC Hastings law professor Joan Williams and her daughter Rachel Dempsey decided to take a closer look at why so few women are at the top, and what successful women do to master office politics. They interviewed more than 120 working women, over half of them women of color. In their new book "What Works for Women at Work," they offer tips and strategies on how women can skillfully navigate challenges such as gender bias.
