Laura Morgan Roberts discusses women leaders on Better Life Lab podcast
September 21, 2020
Center for Positive Organizations (CPO) faculty affiliate Laura Morgan Roberts (along with Ilana Fischer, Adrienne Penta, and Toni Irving) is a guest on the Better Life Lab podcast episode “Crisis Conversations: Women and Leadership.”
The episode explores why there are there still so few women—particularly women of color—in leadership roles in politics, academia, and business. It also examines how to create space for diverse women leaders and enable them to thrive.
“We are at yet another critical juncture around leadership, where we have to take seriously some of our beliefs and assumptions about race and gender and power, within our workplaces, within our communities, within our world,” Roberts says.
Roberts is a Professor of Practice at the University of Virginia. Her book, Race, Work and Leadership: New Perspectives on the Black Experience, was published by the Harvard Business Review Press.
