Women and Leadership

Dr. Farida Virani was invited to conduct a session on ‘Women and Leadership’ at the ‘Lions Academy of Excellence’ programme for its members. The programme aims at ‘Professionalizing Volunteerism’.   Even though there is a general agreement that ‘Women are Equally Qualified and Competent, Barriers Persist’. Women may not always realize how poised for success they are in leadership roles, but their potential and abilities are undeniable.  With insightful examples she deliberated upon the reasons why women make great leaders and the factors contributing to the existing imbalance in power. She also discussed some powerful strategies of successful women leaders. She concluded leaving the audience with a potent thought; “Dream it. Dare it. Do it”.
