Leadership and Gender Equality in the 21st century Bifröst University Iceland June 29 - July 20

It is a well-known fact that women are underrepresented in top tier role e.g., in business, politics and academia, fields that thereby forego a vast resource of leadership potential.

Furthermore, there is a correlation between gender equality and the level of societal welfare.... [-]
