Why is there underrepresentation of women in leadership? Who becomes a leader and why? What makes effective leaders? Do women “lead differently” than their male counterparts? Do quotas or other diversity policies work? These questions will motivate this interactive seminar as we examine research and case studies about female leaders of all types — from those running for office to those serving in high levels of government to those working as grassroots organizers.
