An Interview with Julia Boorstin, Author of “When Women Lead”: Counterintuitive and Important Lessons for all Leaders
February 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST Free
Julia Boorstin was 13 when her mother told her that, by the time she grew up, women could be just as powerful as men: “captains of industry, running the biggest companies.” Unfortunately, when it comes to gender equity, conditions have not changed as much as her mother had hoped. But female leaders all over the world are succeeding, not in spite of but because of their unique strengths and personality traits. They’re defying the odds. What can we learn from them?
In “When Women Lead: What They Achieve, Why They Succeed, and How We Can Learn from Them,” Boorstin, TV reporter and creator of CNBC’s Disruptor 50 franchise, shares her groundbreaking and deeply reported narrative work incorporating the stories of hundreds of female executives. It reveals the counterintuitive, against-all-odds approaches of women running the world’s most innovative (and successful) companies — and what we can learn from them.
Whether you’re a woman looking to rise in your organization or taking on a new leadership position or a male leader looking to empower women in your organization, “When Women Lead” is a radical blueprint for the future of business.
