Taking the Lead

2017 12 13 ENT HV Taking The Lead Allyson Zimmermann Catalyst

Women are not new to leadership; think of Cleopatra or Queen Elizabeth. Think of the women who led the civil rights and education reform movements. However, gender stereotyping is still discernible and men and women participate equally. These stereotypes often portray women as lacking the qualities needed for effective leadership, instead depicting men as a more natural fit for top leadership positions. Today we have Allyson Zimmermann, executive director of Catalyst, to talk about women’s underrepresentation in leadership roles and share suggestions on what we can do to change the status quo.
