Too Feminine or Not Feminine Enough? How Authenticity can Get Women to the Top
Saturday 1 April 2017
Oxford Martin School: Lecture TheatreVenue
Leadership experts Paul Vanderbroeck and Oriane Kets de Vries explore how women make it to the top and what qualities they need to stay there. A comparison of historic and current examples will spark a debate on wider questions around women and leadership. What can ambitious women leaders learn from Cleopatra, Hillary Clinton or Theresa May?
Vanderbroeck is an executive coach specialising in women leaders, lecturer at LUISS Business School in Rome, and author of Leadership Strategies for Women: Lessons from Four Queens on Leadership and Career Development. He argues that Clinton failed to beat Trump because she made too little of being a woman, and there is much to learn from that failure.
Kets de Vries is managing director of the Kets de Vries Institute, a leadership consultancy. Before becoming a consultant she had a business career in the fashion industry. She specialises in developing executive women and aims to develop authentic leadership styles.
Discussions are chaired by journalist and reviewer for the FT Suzi Feay.
