Lean in? The Role of Gender in 21st Century Leadership
This workshop focuses on gender's role in leadership in the 21st century. Do women define success and ambition the same way men do? Are such differences at the root of the gender gap in upper levels of leadership? Why are success and likeability positively correlated for men, but negatively correlated for women? How can organizations better support men who want to have more work-life balance? Do women have a responsibility to lean in to leadership positions if they are offered? This workshop will utilize both academic research and practical experiences of participants to explore these thought-provoking questions.
