Through the Labyrinth

Despite real progress, women remain rare enough in elite positions of power that their presence still evokes a sense of wonder (Eagley & Carli, 2015). This leadership series explores why women's paths to power remain difficult to traverse.  Each month participants are asked to read a specified chapter of Eagly & Carli’s (2015) ‘Through the Labyrinth: The truth about how women becomes leaders’ which is coupled with a workshop or presentation by leading female FedUni academic.
