Hi! I’m Karen Otis. As women in male dominated industries, we often experience gender bias. As a female architect, I know this all too well; I developed proven tips and strategies that guide and empower you to take hold of your career, create your success, and shatter the gender bias while radiating your femininity. I have navigated the Architecture industry with finesse, rather than resorting to a dominating or aggressive energy. Recently when I took a look at the staggering gender bias statistics in workplaces, I delved into my career past, and I noticed that I had run into many gender biased situations, but I had circumvented them with such effective tactics that they rendered the gender bias powerless and ineffective.
Now it is my passion to streamline the path for women to jump into their chosen career regardless if it is male dominated or not. I have lots of stories, insights, and guidance to share. Some will shock you, some will make you laugh, some are embarrassing, and others empowering. So let’s work together, ladies!
Karen's highly anticipated sophomore book, set for an early 2019 release, Hard Hat and Heels deals with how to navigate any male dominated industry and come out on top! Contact Karen to discuss this transformative and meaningful topic.
