Women in Leadership Roundtable: The changing face of leadership

July 11, 2023

New challenges require new ways of leading. However, the human instinct to pattern match means that we have been stuck with the same homogenous picture when we think of business leadership. This limits our chances to benefit from the diverse leadership styles that can help us tackle today’s big problems. 

Our roundtable discussion will focus on the unique capabilities of female leaders and dig into how panelists are using their attributes and experiences to tackle business challenges and harness opportunities. Finally, we’ll discuss how these women are working to change the vision of what leadership looks like.

Who should watch:

Regardless of your career stage or gender, you’ll walk away with valuable advice on how to rise through the ranks and achieve your professional goals.​
