We’re moving away from the corporate model. We’re coming into an era where women have the skill sets and core value systems. Being collegial, collaborative, checking your ego at the door… able to work in a non-hierarchical environment, listening, attuned to intuition. These are increasingly all characteristics of senior leaders. Women have that capacity, as mothers and sisters and preservers of the family. When we come through this period, I think we’ll find many more women at the senior level.”
