Since Unwritten Rules was published earlier this year I have been speaking at conferences, corporations and on panels. All of these events have had one thing in common – the audience has been almost exclusively women.
Can we get CEO’s to create gender-balanced teams to lead their organizations? Can we get professional services firms to operate differently so that more women stay and make partner? Can we get political parties to field equal numbers of men and women candidates, and then get journalists and voters to give women a fair chance?
So far, the answer in all cases has been “no” or “rarely”. Women achieving senior levels of leadership still make the news.
