The number of women assuming leadership positions is at an all-time high. Research shows that women CEOs frequently outpace their male counterparts in delivering profits, women are at the forefront of scientific research, and women coaches exceed expectations in terms of leading teams.
But when it comes to the overall numbers for women in the workforce, women’s participation in the economy, and their representation in leadership roles, we still have much more to achieve.
Additionally, there is always need and space to spotlight new role models who can continue to inspire women to not only join the workforce but also equip themselves with skills that will help them get and excel in leadership roles.
This is why AWS and YourStory joined hands to create the video series ‘HER Leadership’. After two virtual seasons, we have decided to convene these established and emerging women leaders in a physical format with HER Leadership AWS ExecLeaders 2023.
