Closing the Leadership Gap: Why Women Can and Must Help Run the World
Marie C. Wilson
Despite the common view that women already permeate every level of leadership in this country, in fact the United States ranks fifty-ninth in the world in terms of female political representation, and women lead only eight Fortune 500 companies. In this inspiring call-to action, leading women’s advocate Marie C. Wilson explains why we need more women leading alongside men now, not just for the sake of fairness but for the larger social good.
As Wilson argues, even as our nation sits on a world spinning with crises, we have barely begun to tap our most critical natural resource - women. Written with passion and insight, this handbook shows how we can all make a difference and finally close the leadership gap.
