What makes a leader? How is “good” leadership defined – and by whom?
Too often the attributes depicting women in leadership present an exclusive value set which fails to encompass difference in individuals. At McGill Women in Leadership Students’ Association, we believe leaders come in all forms, from all sectors, represent all backgrounds and exist in varying roles all of which have equal merit. The theme of our conference this year is “Reimagining Leadership” where we aim to better understand what being a leader means to different women and how intersectionality plays a key role in determining the various pathways that direct women into leadership positions. It’s time for women to define, on our own terms, what leadership means to us and how we can work to create conditions in the workforce that truly celebrates diversity.
