Mediocre: The Dangerous Legacy of White Male America (Audiobook) by Ijeoma Oluo

Workplaces that devalue traits and skills like empathy, communication, and cooperation, which women are more likely to be socialized to have, almost always overvalue traits like hyper-competitiveness, aggression, and impulsiveness, which men are more likely to be socialized to have, even when those characteristics harm a work environment.
