What can we learn from great women leaders and pioneers of the past like Queen Elizabeth I, Hellen Keller and Marie Curie? How can yesterday's female thought leaders and activists, such as Virginia Woolf and Eleanor Roosevelt, illuminate the challenges and prejudices that women in power must overcome today? In this intensively interactive webinar, we will analyze how great female minds, past and present, can help us create a road map for the 21st-century woman leader, as we consider the issue of “women in power” in culture, politics, the military, and business.
Topics addressed include:
• What we can learn from how women leaders of the past addressed challenges of their time
• What are the lingering gender-based obstacles that women leaders must overcome?
• How women leaders today can successfully negotiate work-life challenges while pursuing their career goals?
• How to create action plans for effective leadership strategies based on the work, principles, and ideas of some of history’s most powerful women?
