#TwitterChat: Women Leaders of Tomorrow - Are we encouraging them enough?
In the run-up to Women’s Day this year, Adgully has been coming up with a series of articles, feature reports, interactions and #TwitterChat episodes highlighting the achievements of our formidable women in the workforce as well as women leaders who have been successfully steering their teams and organisations through the uncharted waters in the post-pandemic world.
Be it in politics – Kamala Harris, first female Vice President of USA, New Zealand PM Jacinda Arden, Germany’s Angela Merkel, Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen and many more women leaders. Be it in the frontiers of space – Swati Mohan and Vandana Verma, who have major roles in US’ Mars exploration and placing the Perseverance rover on the red planet. Be it in business, science, defence, aviation, fighting COVID-19 – women are marching ahead in every sphere.
The innate qualities of women – nurturing, empathetic, multi-tasking, resilient – are the leadership traits that are increasingly being adopted cutting across gender. For long, there have been calls for making the top echelons of organisations more inclusive, gender sensitive and having a greater representation of women.
The pandemic period has seen women leaders flourishing as they deftly handled not just their companies and teams, but also their homes and families. While 2020 showed us reality like never before, this was also the year we saw the true essence of woman leaders and the power they hold. However, a very important question still arises – how is the industry preparing the next generation of leaders? Are we encouraging them enough? ‘Women Leaders of Tomorrow – Are we encouraging them enough?’ – the next episode of Adgully’s premier #TwitterChat will address this pertinent topic.
