Women Leaders in Law and Business: Trailblazers, Innovators, and Disrupters in the Law (2019)
The University of Carey Law School’s Women, Law & Leadership seminar examined the underrepresentation of women in leadership in law and business and the policy and strategic imperatives that could equalize the playing field for all women and reconceptualize the workplace for both women and men. The research on the barriers to leadership were conducted through interviews with women leaders who have helped to dismantle structural barriers and blazed a trail for other women in law, business and public life. Through this research on the lived experiences of women in law and business, the seminar advanced a transformative theory of leadership based on a model of gender equality, fairness, and macroeconomics. The narratives of women’s leadership can serve as a powerful charge to the next generation of leaders, transform the political economy of our time and create a new theory of justice.
