Journalist Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC's morning news program Morning Joe, and author of the bestselling memoir All Things at Once, will be interviewed by her co-host Joe Scarborough, in the Cole Auditorium on Tuesday, December 6 at 7 p.m. about her newest book, Knowing Your Value: Women, Money and Getting What You're Worth.
Despite great strides in the last few decades, the fact remains that a woman's value and her financial compensation in the workplace still lags behind her male counterpart's. In Knowing Your Value, Brzezinski presents an in-depth exploration of how women today manage to achieve the recognition and financial worth they deserve.
Largely prompted by her own experience as co-host of Morning Joe, Brzezinski has written a compelling "must-read" for women of all ages and professions. In Brzezinski's signature style of brutal honesty blended with wit, Knowing Your Value mixes personal stories with the hard facts and latest research on issues such as equal pay, access to funding and startup capital and women in the boardroom. Brzezinski writes about prominent women from a wide spectrum of industries, among them writer and director Nora Ephron, Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg, broadcaster Joy Behar and comedian Susie Essman. Brzezinski also uncovers what men think about the approach women take in the workplace, getting honest answers from Jack Welch, Donald Trump and others about why women are paid less. Prior to joining MSNBC in January 2007, Brzezinski was an anchor of the CBS Evening News Weekend Edition and a CBS News correspondent who contributed to CBS Sunday Morning and 60 Minutes.
