Women's Leadership Initiative
Our goal is to help the JCU community focus on the challenges women face today and
find solutions. Although, in most Western countries, women have reached legal equality;
the obstacles to real equality have not yet been reached. There are still gender-related
issues such as the persistence of stereotypes that discriminate against women in society
and within the family, the growing intensity of violence against women, the power
of the glass ceiling in the workplace, inequality in the salary scale, and the lack
of significant role models for young women. The Women's Leadership Initiative will
present opportunities for emerging women leaders to develop the core values, attitudes,
and competencies that are the foundation of quality leadership in a professional setting.
Through the Women's Leadership Initiative, we hope to not only develop our own personal leadership skills but that of all members with topics such as effective communication, confidence and above all- equality awareness.
