Over the past century, women have made significant strides in achieving leadership positions, but they still have a long way to go to achieve parity in jobs, pay, and representation in business, science, government, or academia. In this session, we’ll examine the embedded gender biases that bar women from leadership positions, and ask what strategies women (and men) can employ to promote greater levels of gender equality. Importantly, we’ll discuss the promise of women’s leadership, and the advantages gained as more women rise to the highest levels of decision making. Stanford law professor Deborah Rhode, author of several books on women and leadership, is joined by New York Times Deputy Managing Editor Rebecca Blumenstein — two prominent female leaders in their own right. Underwritten by General Mills.
