Watch the Film: The Devil Wears Prada

This film follows the experiences of Andrea, a young woman who is hired at Runway, a top fashion magazine, where the culture is dominated by assumptions of control, hierarchy, exchange, and competition. It is a culture in which managers and employees constantly criticize each other’s clothing, weight, and job performance. After several terrible months on the job, Andrea experiences a turning point, and she is surprised to discover that her boss, Miranda, who treated her so poorly, ultimately comes to hold her in high regard. The film has much to teach us about organizations and personal change.

Questions to Consider

1. Andrea is a novice entering her first professional job setting.

  • What are some of the initial indicators that she has entered a culture dominated by the desire for external recognition?
