Smashing the Glass Ceiling Once and for All with Randall White
February 5, 2015
Hosted by Linda Sharkey
Smashing the glass ceiling once and for all is closer than we think. We have been making strides on this subject for years. But the stars seem to be aligned as we move into the complex, global, fast paced world of the 21st Century. We are being forced in many ways to change our paradigms on how we think of leadership and management. Inclusion is no longer a nice-to-have but a must-have. Davos highlighted that the war for talent is still very much top of mind for all organizations. Being able to attract and retain talent, no matter what they look like, where they hail from and how they do things is key to success today and tomorrow. Now we have to make certain we embrace the differences. Dr. Randall White, co-author of " Breaking the Glass Ceiling: Can Women Reach the Top of America's Largest Corporations? " will be joining me on this show to explore the research on women in the global context. He will be sharing facts, trends and what they mean for all of us in the future.
