Women make up nearly half the workforce but still represent only 5% of Fortune 500 CEOs. However, the number of women in senior leadership roles is increasing each year. What lessons can we learn from those who reach the executive ranks?
In this episode of the Building Bridges Podcast, we are joined by three accomplished guests to discuss a terrific book, The Collective Wisdom of High Performing Women. Our guests also describe their affiliation with The Judy Project, a Canadian program for women who are ascending into executive leadership and C-suite positions.
Our guests are:
- Colleen Moorehead, the Chief Client Officer at Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP
- Beth Wilson, the Canada CEO of Dentons
- Shelly Lazarus, Chairman Emeritus and former CEO of Ogilvy.
In Part 1 of our two-episode conversation, we explore:
- The origin and objectives of the Judy Project and Collective Wisdom
- How success and ambition are perceived for both men and women
- The impact of gender on our guests’ careers
- Evolving characteristics of successful leaders
After listening to the first part of this conversation, you may want to check out Part 2.
