"Women and Leadership: How We Do It All," a conversation between Carme Chacón and Jessica Lappin, Moderated by Vince Boudreau, A Breakfast Event


Monday, May 5, 2014

In the past few years, conversations about women and work have made headlines, notably in books and articles by Ursula Burns, Sheryl Sandberg, Anne-Marie Slaughter, or Najat Vallaud-Belkacem. Whether it's about "leaning in," or "doing it all," women are without a doubt occupying leadership positions and making personal lives work. This conversation will focus on how leadership, and the role of women in governance, work both in the United States and Europe. Are there cultural differences? How do societal norms structure how a 'woman' operates in the workplace? Which lessons might we learn from such a transatlantic dialogue? Carme Chacón is Spain's first female Minister of Defense and a professor in residence at Miami Dade College. Jessica Lappin is President, Alliance for Downtown New York, former New York City legislator and Lower Manhattan business leader. Click here for more information and to register.
