Lessons that can be learned from women leaders
A book launch of Women and Leadership: Real Lives, Real Lessons written by Former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard and economist, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala will take place in July 2020. This inspirational and practical book, written by two high-achieving women, shares the experience and advice of some of our most extraordinary women leaders in their own words.
From their careers and interests in politics, business and not-for-profits, both Julia and Ngozi have strong ideas about the impact of gender on the treatment of leaders. In their book, Women and Leadership, they seek to put the academic work about women in leadership to the test in the real world. They have conducted face-to-face interviews with Jacinda Ardern, Hillary Clinton, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Theresa May, Michelle Bachelet, Joyce Banda, Erna Solberg, Christine Lagarde and more.
Penguin Australia says: "Women and Leadership presents a lively and readable analysis of the influence of gender on women's access to positions of leadership, the perceptions of them as leaders, the trajectory of their leadership and the circumstances in which it comes to an end.
By presenting the lessons that can be learned from women leaders, the authors provide a road map of essential knowledge to inspire us all, and an action agenda for change that allows women to take control and combat gender bias."
