Jour fixe Oktober 2021- Is there such a thing as Female Leadership?

Keynote: Prof. Dr. Marie-​Therese ClaesLeiterin des Instituts für Gender und Diversität in Organisationen an der Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien

Is there such a thing as Female Leadership?

The literature about “female leadership” gives ample descriptions of the qualities that women leaders display more than their male colleagues. On the other hand, more humane, so-called female qualities, such as transformative leadership, are now expected from all leaders, a tendency that has been accentuated by the pandemic crisis.

However, women are not recognized as ‘leaders’ because of differences in communication styles that may be at their disadvantage as far as power and status go.
