Crisis Conversations: Women and Leadership Better Life Lab

    • Society & Culture

Kamala Harris just made history as the first woman of color nominated for national office by a major party. So why, after so much time and money have been spent on diversity initiatives, and on women’s leadership conferences and the like, are there still so few women — particularly women of color — in leadership positions in politics, in academia, and in American business?
Join us as women leaders and thinkers share what needs to change to create space for more diverse women leaders, and to enable them to thrive. And why — especially now — that matters so much, for all of us.
Host:
Brigid Schulte, Director, Better Life Lab at New America

Guests:
 Laura Morgan Roberts, Professor of Practice at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business and author of Beating the Odds and Race and Leadership: The Black Experience in the Workplace
Ilana Fischer,CEO of Whisps, a growing snack company where 100 percent of the C-suite executives are women
Adrienne Penta. Managing Director at Brown Brothers Harriman and executive director of the Center for Women & Wealth
Toni Irving, Professor of Practice at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business and former executive director of Get IN Chicago, where she led a $45 million social impact fund to reduce gun violence
