Why is it that in 2014, there are still so few women in leadership positions? The experts at Take the Lead are looking to change that!
Take the Lead was created by Amy Litzenberger and Gloria Feldt, two ambitious women who wanted to figure out why there just aren’t enough women in leadership roles. Their goal is to prepare, develop, inspire and propel women to bridge the gap and claim their equal share of leadership positions in the community and the workplace by 2025. Pretty motivational, right? We think so too!
Tonight at 8 p.m. EST, the women behind this inspirational movement will be launching an event that features some of the most dynamic female speakers and thought leaders in the world today–and we’re streaming it here on Her Campus! The Take the Lead Challenge Launch Event speakers include Sheryl Sandberg, the COO of Facebook; Carla Harris, who was appointed by President Barack Obama to chair the National Women’s Business Council; the founders of Take the Lead; and more!
The event will also include a panel on the impact of media on women’s leadership with some of today’s top female journalists, as well as a surprise, career-changing giveaway for collegiettes who participate! This event is an amazing opportunity to connect and network with other young women who want to take charge, pursue their ambitions and maybe even change the world.
