Let’s talk about women in leadership

By Monique Zytnik
I’ve been inspired by the amazing female leaders on the global stage who have coolly and effectively handled the recent crisis and are still negotiating, supporting and inspiring others as their countries head on the road to recovery. I see these leaders as role models.However, looking at numbers of women in leadership roles last year we still have a way to go to achieve fair representation. This year the outlook is grimmer. Many social commentators fear that women have just taken a giant leap backwards and under the increased family and social strain are less likely to put their hands up for leadership roles.
