Women in Leadership: What the Science Says and How to Move Forward in the Era of #MeToo
Women in the United States have more freedom than ever before to pursue career goals. So why do they remain underrepresented at the top of the workforce, even in libraries where there are so many women? Dive into the social science of gender perception and learn what the research reveals. Among the questions addressed: What is “imposter syndrome?” What characteristics do most Americans believe make a leader, and why is having those qualities not enough? How do we move toward a more equitable, and successful, future? This presentation is about women, but welcomes all genders.
