Finding And Harnessing The Joy In Our Leadership

Leading for social justice is serious and exhausting work. So, how and where do women find the energy, the rewards, the satisfaction and the joy in their leadership? What sustains them in a man’s world? How can that be harnessed to advance and support others? How do we bring back the joy to our work and let the joy be evident and effective in our support of other women leaders. How can we push forward women’s agenda with deliberate dialogue which reflects the ways in which women work.

The theme of this conference aims to shift the storyline of women’s leadership in order to seek systemic change and support the diverse ways in which women lead. Through the sharing of leadership experiences, innovative research and by engaging in dialogue, women’s ways of leading from global perspectives can be affirmed, supported and developed in ways which illuminate women’s ways of leading through professionally and personally rewarding practices.
