High-achieving women across a variety of fields share their worst mistakes—and how overcoming these mistakes paved the way for future successes.

The cultural conversation around women in the workplace has reached a fever pitch. Women are being told to lean in, to assert themselves, to ask for more, to analyze their work/life balance. But despite all of this dialogue, there’s something that no one is talking about: advice on how to recover when you’ve stumbled. Everyone makes mistakes, but for many women, acknowledging them can feel tantamount to career suicide. Jess Bacal, founder of the Smith College Center for Work and Life, is here to change that mentality. In Mistakes I Made at Work, Bacal interviews 25 women about critical mistakes they’ve made on the job, and how they took those mistakes and spun them into career-making gold.

Among those interviewed are:
• Cheryl Strayed, New York Times bestselling author of Wild
• Laurel Touby, founder of MediaBistro
• Rosie Perez, actress and activist
• Anna Holmes, founding editor of
• Joanna Barsch, Director Emeritus of McKinsey &Company

Ideal for those just entering the workplace, as well as for those looking to move up the corporate ladder, Mistakes I Made at Work will resonate as alongside titles like Lean In and Nice Girls Don’t Get the Corner Office as a go-to career book for years to come.
