  • (1888PressRelease) December 08, 2018 - emPOWher (ISBN 13: 978-1980819622, 2018) by Adrenna Alkhas written for young women struggling in a toxic work environment and seeking advice on how to navigate it has been released. Drawing on her own experience in corporate America, Alkhas describes her struggles, and triumphs in the corporate world offering a blueprint on how working together women can foster a positive work environment and reinforce each other professionally. For thousands of young women entering the workforce for the first time in their lives, the workplace presents challenges that college did not prepare them for – a toxic workplace - and this is where emPOWher offers them the dos and don’ts of dealing with the toxicity. Each chapter is written in a short and easy to read style covering major issues that women confront in the workplace such as office gossip, deciding whether or not to have children, and if they do how it will affect their goals. In one very personal chapter, “The Battlefield”, Alkhas compares the workplace to just that, a battlefield and how women must band together, now more than ever, to help each other in the corporate battlefield. In illustrating this, she recounts the story of her great grandmother, who survived the Assyrian Genocide in 1915. After fleeing the genocide in Iran and arriving in Iraq, her great grandmother lived in refugee camps where it was through the fortitude of herself and other women that ensured her survival and that of fellow Assyrians. emPOWher is available on Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com

    “I am very excited that emPOWher has been released and hope readers will feel empowered in creating a better workplace for themselves and fellow women when reading it,” said Adrenna Alkhas, author of emPOWher. “The whole purpose of this book is so that women value themselves, and other women in the workplace. If women do this, there is nothing I believe they cannot overcome working together.”

    emPOWher is ideal for young women just entering the workplace. The book begins by taking readers into the comic-book superheroine world to discuss what a true leader looks like. Just like the comic book superhero, struggling to find their place, so do young women in the workplace struggle to fit in. Just as the superhero finds their power from within them, so too Alkhas writes will the young professional female find her power and strength to deal with the workplace from within herself. The book teaches young women that a successful leader should be humble and kind. It also strives for women to be educators in their field and who can embrace the generation after them to be motivators in a movement of women embracing other women.
