Why are women still under-represented in senior leadership positions? Why do we have to navigate the political landscapes of our organizations differently from our male counterparts? And WHEN will this change?!  We'll delve into the socio-cultural dynamics, structural barriers, and evolving landscapes that shape women's pathways to leadership roles, and "fill our toolboxes" with strategies to support and empower women at all stages of their careers.
