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 riddled with 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—and thus biased in their nature—or if the perceptions around things like “leadership” and “power” are somehow flawed? Our panel will discuss the biases they see around leadership traits and how these biases have shaped employment growth opportunities for some, while blocking access to others. They’ll also offer thoughts on what needs to be done collectively to redefine qualities traditionally seen as inherent to success so that everyone is fairly represented on all levels of the leadership ladder.
