Reflections From Both Sides of the Glass Ceiling:  Finding My True Self in Corporate America

For Stephanie Battaglino, her lifelong journey of self-discovery closely paralleled her daily grind of trudging up the corporate ladder.  Her ongoing struggle to come to terms with her authentic self was intertwined with her drive to have a successful career.  While she longed to be recognized for her work, she hid from her true self for decades lost in a maze of shame, guilt, and denial.

Amidst the successes and failures of working as a male in the corporate world, Stephanie finally realized that the only path to career fulfillment was to embrace her true self once and for all.

That it resulted in her becoming the first officer in the history of New York Life to come out on the job as transgender is not surprising.  What was surprising was her abrupt introduction to that generations-old nemesis of working women everywhere, the Glass Ceiling.  What she quickly realized was that her embrace of her authentic self came with a price: the loss of male privilege.

Reflections from Both Sides of the Glass Ceiling:  Finding My Authentic Self in Corporate America is part memoir, part cautionary tale of what it is like to experience a career on both sides of the gender divide.  Stephanie’s frank, honest and vulnerable storytelling paints a vivid picture of what the intersection of gender and gender identity looks like from a decidedly unique point of view.

In Reflections from Both Sides of the Glass Ceiling:  Finding My Authentic Self in Corporate America Stephanie shares rare insight and perspective on what she learned from her experience transcending the Glass Ceiling to find personal and professional fulfillment.  Stephanie’s unique and very personal experience provides a powerful trailblazing story of inspiration, self-discovery, and triumph.  It is a tale that resonates with women, men, and those that identify somewhere in between.
