WOMEN'S LEADERSHIP - summer reading
What are the conditions of women's leadership in technology and science and how to support them? - this is the question that the creators of the "Women's Leadership 2021. Technologies, Business, Science," i.e., the Perspektywy Education Foundation and the Citi Foundation, asked themselves.
The Report was created as the result of a survey conducted among 750 women leaders - entrepreneurs, startuppers, managers occupying high positions in their companies, scientists with administrative responsibility at universities and research institutes, as well as young people demonstrating leadership abilities at universities. The goal of the report was to analyse the phenomenon of women's leadership in the millennial generation - one most active in the labour market.
"Women’s Potential 2021. Technologies, Business, Science" report was created within the "Shesnnovation Academy" program with the support from the Kronenberg Foundation. The report ebook (in Polish and English) may be downloaded HERE
