What kind of leaders OR style of leadership will we need to recover from the pandemic?

Have the leadership traits which have traditionally been considered as “feminine” (i.e. empathy, inclusion, communication) performed better in the crisis? Consider the examples of political leaders such as Jacinda Ardern, Angela Merkel etc who were reported as having “managed” the pandemic better in the first wave. Is this also true for business?

Much is being written about how the Covid-19 pandemic may more adversely impact females in the workplace (as they take on greater domestic responsibilities / as they predominantly work insignificantly-impacted sectors e.g. retail). Is there a danger this will undo the small increases that have been made in female equality in the workplace?(McKinsey)

What challenges are particularly faced by female leaders? Do women you are speaking to feel more powerful or powerless? How can female leaders maintain their visibility and influence despite the challenges and issues presented by remote working?

Please join the discussion at on Thursday 11th February at 2pm GMT
