Bonnie Marcus, Author of Not Done Yet | Empowering Women of Any Age to Excel in Their Career

Bonnie Marcus M.Ed, CEC, is a certified coach, speaker, host of the podcast Badass Women at Any Age, and author of bestselling The Politics of Promotion: How High Achieving Women Get Ahead and Stay Ahead (Wiley). She is a regular contributor to Forbes, among others.

In her forthcoming Not Done Yet! How Women Over 50 Regain Their Confidence and Claim Their Workplace Power, Marcus combines practical advice and exercises in a guide that has no shortage of sass inspiring readers to conquer ageist limitations and own their careers. In this revelatory, inspiring, and savvy new book, readers learn how to keep any job, advance their career and do work they love defying all the ageist assumptions that suggest otherwise.

Despite advances made by women in the workplace, pay inequity and underrepresentation in top positions are still a reality in 2021. And, unfortunately, the situation looks worse for older women across a variety of careers. Often, women over 50 face even greater hurdles to prove themselves despite talent and experiential wisdom to maneuver difficult situations with lasting impact. Acclaimed author, podcast host and sought-after coach, Bonnie Marcus, terms this “the double whammy of gendered ageism."
