Revising the Playbook: Understanding (and Undoing) the Limited Scope of Leadership

Event Details

Nov 19, 2020

12:00PM-1:15PM EDT

Remote

Complimentary

The Thomson Reuters Institute’s Transforming Women’s Leadership initiative and the University of Pennsylvania’s Carey Law School proudly present the third installment of a three-part webinar series on advancing equity in leadership. Leveraging nuanced insight and brand new research around allyship and inclusivity, this series offers meaningful solutions toward advancing career and leadership opportunities for underrepresented individuals in the workplace.

Our collective human history is full of examples of male leaders who have overcome adversity to achieve “great” success.  Often these leaders possess qualities revered by both bureaucracy and boardrooms alike.   Yet given that minorities and women still hold few positions of “power,” one cannot help but beg the question of whether these traits are narrowly defined or if the perceptions around things like “leadership” and “power” are not in fact universal?  Our panel will discuss the biases they see around leadership traits and how these narrowed definitions have shaped employment growth opportunities for some as opposed to all.
