Who's in charge: Why aren't there more women in leadership roles?
Tuesday, September 9, 2014


Join CBC Vancouver's Gloria Macarenko as she moderates this upcoming UBC Dialogue

For decades women have been fighting for workplace equality, and in many sectors, progress has been made. But in boardrooms and executive offices across the country, there remains a noticeable absence of women in senior leadership positions. What lies behind this gender imbalance? Is it due to deeply-ingrained biases by those making the appointments? Or are some women choosing to forgo leadership opportunities for career paths that offer greater flexibility?
