Women and Leadership: A Symposium (6-7 January 2020)

Christ University, Bengaluru

“Women and Leadership” provides an opportunity to look back at the progress women have made, to acknowledge our debts to pioneering women, to listen to the lessons of those who have achieved prominence, to take stock of the current political climate and its impact on women, and to discuss the way forward for women who can position themselves to exercise leadership within different professions and spheres: political, economic, legal, medical, social, educational, and within the arts. In the process, “Women and Leadership” is well placed to assess the importance of women as leaders and the need for women to occupy positions of leadership within the private and public spaces.
