Female leadership is a subject that has been highly-discussed for some time. And the facts out there clearly state we are losing pace. There’s a lot of work still to be done. Just as there’s work to be done to address a lack of diversity, inclusivity, and equity in organisations and businesses.
One organization bringing the public and private sector together, and giving female leaders a voice, is the Nobel Peace Center. Oslo PAX, the beginnings of a movement from the Peace Center - featuring Nobel Laureates, changemakers, and activists as guests - highlights the need for action when it comes to diversity and gender inclusion in peace and war.
So, this episode is all about Diversity, plus Leadership and Sustainability, seen through the lens of the Nobel Peace Prize and Nobel Prize-winners.
Joining us to share her take on them is Kjersti Fløgstad, CEO of the Nobel Peace Center in Oslo, Norway. Kjersti has led a fascinating career spanning corporate and social sectors. She’s been in leadership positions since she was 30, a Director for one of Norway’s banks at 33, and the Secretary-General of UNICEF Norway for ten years.
In this episode, you’ll hear how you as a business can gain from, and speed up, the process of diversity and sustainability. You’ll hear reflections on the qualities that make a good leader – based on experience, recognizing your own bias, and the barriers that still exist. And you can expect honest discussion around the experience of being a woman in a leadership role today and why it’s important that businesses and organisations come together.
