"There seems to be a universal sigh of reluctance among women when it comes to taking on leadership roles in our careers."
Dayton, Ohio (PRWEB) April 04, 2013
The National Science Foundation ADVANCE Program has invited nationally recognized speaker, entrepreneur, author and tenured Professor Dr. Pamela McCauley Bush, to give the keynote address at the Diversity and Leadership Conference at Ohio's Wright State University.
"There seems to be a universal sigh of reluctance among women when it comes to taking on leadership roles in our careers," writes Bush in her recently published book; Transforming Your STEM Career Through Leadership and Innovation: Inspiration and Strategies for Women "There are many challenges that dissuade women such as gender stereotypes, workplace bias, and self devaluation but successful leadership skills can be developed both on the individual level and as part of a successful corporate culture. The representation of women in leadership positions has a positive correlation with economic performance which is why gender diversity is key to corporate success."
The conference and discussion panel will take place on April 5th at Wright State University's Nutter Center.
