Boardrooms Need to Welcome and Encourage Feminine Qualities

Update   –   22 January 2015

Women in senior corporate and other leadership positions too easily 'begin to think and talk like men', says Scilla Elworthy, the founder of Peace Direct and the Oxford Research Group.


Yet what are most needed are feminine qualities in boardrooms and corporate culture, including compassion, empathy and 'grace under pressure'.


She addressed a Tomorrow's Global Leaders event, on 'Inclusive Leadership–awakening the feminine in women as well as men', in the City of London on 22 January. It was organised by Tomorrow's Company think-tank and hosted by Linklaters law firm. Anita Hoffmann initiated and attended this event.
