Join Professor Nannerl Keohane on Thursday, May 12th at 1pm EST for an important discussion on how female and male undergraduates at Princeton approach their college years, the differences in how they define leadership, and in their overall experience. 

A recent study from the Steering Committee on Undergraduate Women's Leadership makes specific suggestions on how to support young women on campuses, provide them real-life skill sets and make their existing leadership more "visible." Many of the patterns observed in the report are common to other co-ed campuses and have implications for how women advance in careers after graduation.

THINKING BIGGER

What is the bigger picture, and how do you and your ideas fit into it? Your ability to see the bigger picture is what will make it accessible to you – and sometimes what will make it exist at all (a definition of thought leadership).

Building a Pipeline to Women’s Leadership

Female students have now surpassed their male peers in high school and college graduation rates. Yet across sectors, women’s representation in professional leadership roles has stalled at 15-17%. If women make up the majority of students earning Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral degrees why are there so few women in top management positions? Further aggravating women’s uneven progress, the disparity is often most pronounced in the most lucrative fields, especially STEM, economics, and finance.

Building a Pipeline to Women’s Leadership
