 Although some progress has been made with women reaching the uppermost levels of leadership in government and business, we still have a long way to go before we have equitable representation at the table. You will learn of the facts and figures, successes, and failures, and discover ways each of us can promote the idea that women can lead as well as men, although perhaps with a different style.
