About the presentation
‘Given the list of global issues facing humanity, it is time to observe women leaders as Heads of States and Governments and national and international institutions. Are there common characteristics in the way that they discharge their responsibilities and deal with these world issues? What can we learn from these observations?
As we deal with current and foreseeable issues, where are the gaps in gender inequality and how can these be bridged?’
